Nature connection and resilience for a sustainable future, Mt Tarrangower, 16th Oct 2021
Our event ‘Nature connection and resilience for a sustainable future’ had to be postponed to Saturday 16th October 2021 at Mt Tarrangower near Maldon. We had to change the location as well so if you haven’t already bought tickets, this is your chance! Here is the info:
Where do we find resilience in these challenging times? How do we embrace a way of life that protects and enhance the natural world? Mirawara is organising an event that will touch on those questions and open conversation on how to move forward in this changing world. Deep adaptation and cultural change are needed so come and join the conversation in the natural surroundings of Mt Tarrangower near Maldon on Saturday 16th October 2021. The day will include Welcome to Country and a Cultural walk with Dja Dja Wurrung elder, ancestral work with Emmanuelle Dubuc, fire by friction, deep nature connection and games with Claire Dunn (My Year Without Matches) and Indigenous stories and dance with Mitchell Boney and Rebecca Phillips. BYO lunch, water and chairs. This is a great family event, everyone is welcome!
