Event description

Celebrate the beginning of NAIDOC Week with a fun-filled event for the whole family. Attendees will experience Indigenous storytelling with Muffy Hedges, as well as learn songs in Wiradjuri languages and participate in a smoking ceremony with Alfie Walker. Children will have the opportunity to create their own artwork using natural resources from the local area.

Alfie Walker is a local custodian, artist, actor, musician and storyteller from the Goulburn area and surrounds. Alfie identifies as a Wiradjuri man & Yuin man of the South Coast region & Brungle regions of South East NSW. He has family connections & songlines to Ngarigo, Ngunnawal, Ngambrie, Gundungarra & Dharawal peoples of NSW.

Muffy Hedges, a proud Darug woman, came to Goulburn in 1978 and trained as a teacher at Goulburn College of Advanced Education. Since then, she has regularly contributed to the Goulburn performing arts scene in a variety of capacities, be it on stage, in bands, choirs or the orchestra pit, in countless productions, recitals and performances. As a teacher in the public school system for over 40 years, she has voluntarily trained hundreds of children in choirs and poetry recitals for the Goulburn Eisteddfod. Muffy is a member of the Lieder Theatre Company and Goulburn Local Aboriginal Education Consultative Group. Recognising the beneficial lifelong value of participating in the Creative and Performing Arts to the development of the whole child, it is that which motivates Muffy to continue to provide children with experiences they can pursue or indeed, later draw on as adults.
