Mirrim Ngagu - deep listening
Join Wurundjeri Elder and Master Weaver Aunty Kim Wandin for Mirrim Ngagu, a deep listening experience on Wurundjeri Country.
This short walk will include a ceremony, yarning circle and deep connection to country and culture. Through the intimacy of a small group, explore the cultural significance of basketry, its innovation, technology and Aboriginal knowledges.
'Family, honouring Ancestors, and having continuity of cultural traditions is important to me. Caring for Country is about me honouring everything the land holds, collecting reeds, that is, doing ceremony on Country which is what Country needs, speaking language, calling the reeds by their name, Djirra. Those things are ceremony. It's a consciousness that speaks to all things.'' (Aunty Kim Wandin)
