Celebrating Culture – Walking in Two Worlds
The Marrma’ Rom Two Worlds Foundation
2WF 2020 AT BIRRARUNG MARR – on the banks of the Yarra River.
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.
A lot of love and care and attention to detail was put into the event.
It was a positive experience on many levels - we felt so well looked after and the Festival Staff were second to none.
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
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.
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.
I played the 2 Worlds Festival in Geelong the other week. The intent was to bring Indigenous artists and non-Indigenous artists together and that was about the best festival I have played in 30 years, it was amazing. It was really wonderful.
There is a connection amongst festival goers who are drawn to the type of music on offer, with a strong indigenous centre, that creates a feeling of being with like-minded, friendly people.
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.
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 thought the 2 Worlds Festival was truly unique and inspiring
