Aboriginal Festival Culture at Cully Fest 2017 Explores & Shares the Human Story & History
Aboriginal Festival Culture at Cully Fest 2017 explores the story.
Aboriginal art and the land are inseparable… and it is Aboriginal art that reinforces Australia’s identity as the place in the world with the longest continuing human culture.
There is great interest on the world’s stage – not just with musicians like Mark Atkins pairing with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, but with institutions like Harvard and The Tate in London bringing Aboriginal Art to the fore.
At Cully Fest we take this culture… the story telling, the didgeridoo playing and the art out of sterile museums and into the very place that inspired it - a living, breathing Outback environment where the dirt is red, where kangaroos bound and where the legendary Moondagutta lurks below the surface of the river. It’s hands-on, it’s natural and it’s authentic.
Our Aboriginal festival culture lineup at Cully Fest 2017 will celebrate the best of our Aboriginal and Outback culture while sharing individual stories and history handed down through generations.
There’s dirt, there’s dust and there’s desert out back, but there’s also one thing that thrives in this sometimes unforgiving environment and that’s the unconventional and utterly engaging characters you’ll find at Cully Fest. The people and the faces are a major drawcard to Cully Fest… and, with great country hospitality at Cully Fest, you’ll find them happy to sit and share a yarn or two.
At Cully Fest, we’re celebrating all of our eccentricities and differences with a variety of hosted talks, workshops, concerts and performances. It’s your time to rub shoulders with Aboriginal legends – like poet Herb Wharton – born in Cunnamulla Aboriginal poet and novelist Herb Wharton has inspired people all around the world and loves to share his culture and his story.
