Cultural Connections: Sharing Stories and Songs from Yuin Country at the National Museum of Australia

June 4 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm GMT

Join us as the sun goes down, the stars come out and the Gandel Atrium fills with stories and songs from Yuin Country. The National Museum is proud to present the Yuwinj-Dhari Bulwal: Yuin Country Explored documentary produced as part of a community-led collaboration between the National Museum’s Cultural Connections Initiative and the Eurobodalla Shire Council.

The film responds to the 250th anniversary of Captain Cook’s journey along the east coast of Australia from the perspective of Yuin Elders and community members. Through a series of interviews conducted in spectacular Yuin Country, the film explores the impact of this historical moment and shares the richness and resilience of Yuin culture today.

This unique event includes a performance by the Four Winds Djinama Yilaga choir, a screening of their ‘Bagan’, ‘Barra Barra’ and ‘Mirriwar’ music videos, filmed on Yuin Country, and a Q&A panel with Yuin community members.
