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.
Today’s the day to celebrate the best of our Aboriginal and Outback culture.
