JULY 8 - 10 | 2020
The Mowanjum Festival is Western Australia's largest traditional Aboriginal performance event and is now in its twentieth consecutive year. Mowanjum Arts and Cultural Centre invites you to experience the unique art and culture of the Worrorra, Ngarinyin and Wunambal people at this special celebration. The 2020 Mowanjum Festival acknowledges the vibrant cultures of Aboriginal people across Australia.
The festival is open to the general public from 2pm, with a variety of cultural workshops including didgeridoo playing, boab nut carving and ochre painting conducted in a family friendly environment.
Performers from all ages participate in Junba or traditional dances, telling the stories of the Mowanjum people. The revival and performance of these dances are a significant moment of celebration for the local community, and deeply moving to the elders who thought they might never see those dances again
