Marram-nganjinu biik-gurrin (We Are Country) First Nations Cultural Summit09.03.2017
Held on the lands of the Kulin nation, Marram-nganjinu biik-gurrin is an international First Nations cultural summit that will help forge a new direction of leadership in the cultural and creative sectors.
The three-day summit will explore where First Nations sit within the broader cultural ecology, and champion ways to employ the inherent rights First Nations have in managing and defining their individual and collective cultural and creative futures.
Marram-nganjinu biik-gurrin will be a space for First Nations to own our own business. It will be delivered through a distinctly strong First Nations voice that will create a culturally safe space to interrogate, debate and strategize concepts such as “decolonising spaces and practices” and “asserting cultural sovereignty and authority”.
As such, registration will only be open to First Nations people.
As the Marram-nganjinu biik-gurrin will be of strong interest to all areas of the arts and cultural sector, there will be two open ‘Public Gallery’ sessions during the summit for non-participants to gain insight into the issues and solutions around cultural sovereignty of First Nations. Please check the YIRRAMBOI website closer to the date to find out more information.
Marram-nganjinu biik-gurrin is presented by the British Council and the Australia Council for the Arts, and is proudly supported by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, City of Melbourne and Arts NSW.
