Closing this year’s festival is the contemporary ceremony Kummargii Yulendji Gadabah (together we rise up with knowledge). Douglas & Mackay in close collaboration with Boon Wurrung Elder N’arweet Prof. Carolyn Briggs co-create a sunset celebration of Boon Wurrung culture. Processions, music, fire & dance exhibit the diversity of First Nations peoples & welcomes the broader community who call Naarm home. Traditions & contemporary forms collide in an honouring of First Nations’ wisdom: sharing of lore, land, & story. During the day, festival goers can write their hopes for healing on ceremonial cloths for inclusion in the ceremony.
