Event description

Gathering around shared rhythm, values, and purpose, 6 Narrm-based interdisciplinary and intergenerational artists of the diaspora, weave together their creative and cultural practices for the crafting of story and ceremony.  

Vicki Kinnai (PNG), MzRizk (Lebanon), Katherine Gailer (Colombia), Julie Ann Minaai (Japan/Hawaii), Irihipeti Waretini (Aotearoa) and Bella Waru (Aotearoa) present the unique immersive art and performance experience, RESONANCE

A place of coexistence, collaboration and collective movement; tracing the journeys of our ancestors  to the sacred Kulin lands we now call home. Illuminating possible futures of potential, provision and connection. 

What happens when you put five different cultures, six different creative practices and walks of life in one space with the intention to co-create? To not only co-exist but to establish relations, collectively build and lead?
