YIRRAMBOI is Australia’s premier First Nations arts and cultural festival. Every two years, YIRRAMBOI Festival fills the city of Melbourne in May with an exciting program of free and low-cost events across music, dance, theatre, film, exhibitions, markets, fashion parades, family-friendly events, talks and symposiums, at more than 25 different venues.
YIRRAMBOI means ‘tomorrow’ in the shared local languages of the Boonwurrung and Woiwurrung peoples. The festival presents a future-focused celebration of the sophistication, diversity and continuous evolution of the longest living culture in the world.
With Creative Director Caroline Martin (Boonwurrung) at the helm, this festival will celebrate and demonstrate innovative, modern practices of First Nations creatives, showcasing unique talents and perspectives.
