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.
The mix of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander performers with other backgrounds - so it truly felt like a space for reconciliation without trying too hard.
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.
Very welcoming and inclusive
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
A lot of love and care and attention to detail was put into the event.
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.
On a cultural level, we genuinely feel that this festival deserves a big future."
Congratulations on such an amazing festival! Thank you so much for having us, we had an absolute ball! The location, the acts, the staff, the food! Everything was just done with such love and care and passion and the crowd just loved it
I thought the 2 Worlds Festival was truly unique and inspiring
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.
