YIRRAMBOI First Nations Arts Festival brings to Melbourne a concentration of creative power from across the nation and around the world.
A gathering on the lands of the Kulin Nation, YIRRAMBOI means ‘tomorrow’ in the shared languages of Boon Wurrung and Woi Wurrung.
Melbourne will experience a city wide ‘blakout’ across the 10 days of the Festival, as First Nations visionaries bring dance, music, visual art, film and discussions to our laneways, art spaces and public places.
YIRRAMBOI will present more than 60 events, for all ages and interests, with many of them free.
Highlights include Weelam Ngalut (our place) at the Meat Market featuring a program of contemporary arts and Tooronga Baban Nganjin (New Mums Ceremony) on Mother’s Day: a traditional welcome ceremony for bubs aged newborn to two years.
The City Of Melbourne, supported by Creative Victoria, is pleased to introduce YIRRAMBOI in collaboration with the Elders Council of Kulin Nations people.
