Giiyong Festival - Cancelled

Twofold Aboriginal Corporation, Eden Local Aboriginal Land Council and South East Arts have announced the cancellation of the upcoming Giiyong Festival at Jigamy, just north of Eden NSW on October 9 2021. Held within the Yuin Nation, the Giiyong Festival is a multi-art form festival celebrating traditional and contemporary Aboriginal culture through dance, art, music, food, spoken word, workshops and cultural demonstrations.

The difficult decision to cancel the biggest multi-arts Aboriginal fetsival in the Yuin Nation was made due to the growing concern around the current COVID situation. Festival Project Manager, Jazz Williams from South East Arts says, “A great deal of thought has gone into the decision to cancel, with our primary objective being to keep our community and performers safe.”
