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.
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.
Sharing the diversity of our cultures is integral for cultural strengthening within our own mobs, not just the wider audience
Very welcoming and inclusive
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.
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.
A lot of love and care and attention to detail was put into the event.
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
On a cultural level, we genuinely feel that this festival deserves a big future."
It was a positive experience on many levels - we felt so well looked after and the Festival Staff were second to none.
