YIRRAMBOI means tomorrow in the shared languages of the Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri peoples of the Kulin Nations Melbourne, Australia. YIRRAMBOI Festival is Melbourne’s premier First Nations arts festival presenting the continuous cultures and diverse contemporary practice of First Nations artists from around the world.
YIRRAMBOI is guided by key principles of Indigenous Leadership, New Work, Visibility & Dialogue and International Collaboration, overseen by the Elder’s Council of Kulin Leaders. YIRRAMBOI shifts paradigms and perceptions in how we engage with, talk about, and present Indigenous arts, providing a continuous cycle of activity through our flagship programs Blak Critics, Dhumba Wiiny fire talk and KIN.
The next YIRRAMBOI Festival is happening from Thursday 2 May to Sunday 12 May, 2019.
Presented by City of Melbourne in partnership with First Peoples and Creative Victoria.
