YIRRAMBOI means tomorrow in the shared languages of the Boon Wurrung and Woi Wurrung people of the Kulin Nations.
Presented by the City of Melbourne, YIRRAMBOI is a powerful biennial celebration; a ten-day gathering of First Peoples from across Victoria and around the world, showcasing creative visionaries and cultural leaders on the lands of the Kulin.
During Yirramboi 2017, Arts House transformed into a meeting place to take a spirited look at our histories, traverse the landscape of the present, and cast our gaze to YIRRAMBOI — tomorrow.
Arts House welcomed three extraordinary female artists, Emily Johnson, Genevive Grieves and Hannah Donnelly, who each presented week-long installations and investigations that re-framed notions of belonging, place, and community, climate change and water treaties, and the conjuring of future joy.
