GATES OPEN 11.30AM
The 2 Worlds Festival is a fundraising event for the Marrma’ Rom Foundation,
whose purpose is to provide more leadership and educational opportunities to
young Yolngu women and men and strengthen their Arnhem Land Indigenous communities.
This kind of event give me a lot of faith we can create real change
It was a positive experience on many levels - we felt so well looked after and the Festival Staff were second to none.
I loved the melding of Indigenous and western cultures - there was a lot to see as soon as you walked into the gate, lots of different performers and forms of art like indigenous dancing, local folk craft and rock n roll bands all at the same time.
From the perspective of an artist too, we were welcomed incredibly warmly and treated incredibly well, which can really affect how you play on the day
Sharing the diversity of our cultures is integral for cultural strengthening within our own mobs, not just the wider audience
We hope this event will grow and be supported in the future. The message of reconciliation and celebration of our countries indigenous heritage should be valued and promoted.
I think 2 Worlds is an exceptional cultural event, one that I will remember for a long time and one that I hope will continue to showcase, inspire and educate.
A lot of love and care and attention to detail was put into the event.
On a cultural level, we genuinely feel that this festival deserves a big future."
It was really wonderful. I think it is all about looking after the folks that are there, not just throwing a couple of thousand people into a field and expecting them to enjoy it.
