A nine-day aboriginal arts event
Travelling Bungaree (2015): Performed by Blak Douglas, Karla Dickens, Amala Groom, Warwick Keen, Peter McKenzie, Djon Mundine, Caroline Oakley, Bjorn Stewart, Leanne Tobin and Jason Wing.

To mark the 200th anniversary of the establishment of Bungaree's Farm – the first land grant by colonial authorities to an Aboriginal person in Australia – Mosman Art Gallery have reprised the Bungaree Arts Project this summer by hosting a nine-day site-specific event - Bungaree's Farm - at Georges Heights, Sydney.

Running from Saturday 31 January to Sunday 8 February 2015, Bungaree's Farm is an innovative immersive experience which allows the viewer to 'experience' the life and story of Bungaree outside the confines of a traditional gallery.

Instead the interactive family-friendly event takes place inside a disused industrial space - the former WWII Naval Camouflage Fuel Tank (T5), located adjacent to Georges Heights Oval, Mosman – which is thought to be the site of Bungaree's original farm. Sydney Harbour Federation Trust have repurposed the site for community and cultural use.

Biripi Lament (2015): Performed by Leah Flanagan, Leanne Tobin, Chantelle Woods (audio only) and Sandy Woods (audio only).

Viewers will we presented with large-scale projections, audio, video, performance and installation work from artists such as Daniel Boyd, Jason Wing, Peter McKenzie, Leanne Tobin, Amala Groom, BLAK Douglas (Adam Hill), Leah Flanagan, Sandy Woods, Chantelle Woods, Caroline Oakley, Bjorn Stewart, Karla Dickens, Warwick Keen and Djon Mundine (with performance work developed in consultation with Andrea James.)

The diverse collection of works cover the themes of 'Travelling Bungaree, Being Bungaree, Walking Bungaree, Singing Bungaree and Team Bungaree'.

Bungaree's Farm was developed to accompany the Mosman Art Gallery exhibition, 'Bungaree: The First Australian', which is currently on show at the Gallery to 22 February.

Bungaree's Farm is on show for nine days only from 10am to 4pm daily. It is an all ages event and entry is free.

Performed by Bjorn Stewart, dramaturgy by Andrea James, written by Djon Mundine, John Cheeseman and William Shakespeare.
