Amongst the Indigenous artists, dancers and storytellers across two weekends in February, join Uncle Larry Walsh, a local Aboriginal cultural leader and proud Taunwurrung man, for an hour of storytelling in the Heide sculpture park. Inspired by his local Aboriginal community, plus his own Kulin ancestral blood connections to his country, Uncle Larry is one of the only senior Elders in Melbourne who focuses specifically on storytelling, ensuring the cultural continuity of his ancient oral traditions.
The festival comes to a close in March with Opa! Bato, the only 'Trubački Orkestar' in Australia performing authentic contemporary Balkan brass music from the rich traditions of Serbia, Macedonia and beyond. Bring a picnic and enjoy this summer at Heide for music, art and gardens. Head to the website for more details.
