First peoples storytellers take centre stage at the Yellamundie Festival from 22-24 January 2021 at Carriageworks, 245 Wilson St, Eveleigh. Presented by Moogahlin Performing Arts together with Sydney Festival and Carriageworks, this is the 5th biennial Festival.

Six ground-breaking works from eight First Peoples storytellers; this is an expanded program that includes music and dance-based programming for the first time in its history, as well as playwriting. The only Festival in Australia to identify, develop, and present new First Peoples stories for stage, it's a launchpad for new work and pioneering First People's creatives.

Yellamundie is a Darug word meaning "storyteller", and for just $15, Sydneysiders can be the first to see brand-new developmental works.
