This festival is created in partnership with Pudakul and Darwin Community Arts (DCA), under the artistic and cultural direction of Lynette and Graham Kenyon. It is a celebration of art and culture in the rural area, highlighting First Nations culture alongside a range of contemporary artistic practices.

“We want people to leave our festival with a greater sense of belonging, understanding, and respect of Limilngan-Wulna country and culture” (Lynette Kenyon- Pudakul)

“Daminmin is about connecting our local community to celebrate our unique rural arts and culture while sharing with guests to our community, this festival merges a range of cultural and artistic practices- including clap stick making, nature sketching, indigo dyeing, screen printing and weaving. We enjoy hanging out together in nature, connecting and bringing together a range of people and art forms” (Anna Weekes- DCA)

Daminmin Festival showcases a fusion of traditional and contemporary First Nations and rural arts and culture. We will share traditional Indigenous arts and culture alongside rural arts and culture. Workshops will include Weaving, clap stick making, bush foods and medicine, dyeing, drawing, dancing. We will also showcase a collection of great local short films, local musicians, and dances.
