Darebin’s brand-new multi-arts festival FUSE has continued to put the local arts scene at the forefront during spring 2020 and is now launching a new project entitled Wurru-Wurru, which sees six local artists handpicked to create fresh and original music, poetry, dance and visual art.
The Wurru-Wurru project is designed to bring First Nations people together in traditional ways of ceremony, across a myriad of art, performance and storytelling.
Project curator Allara Briggs Pattison, a Yorta Yorta artist and creative entrepreneur, has selected six First Nations Artists to create new work inspired by the theme ‘Wurru-Wurru’, which in Woiwurrung language means ‘Sacred Kingfisher’ and ‘sky’. Four new works have been in development over the past two months and will be released to coincide with NAIDOC week, as part of FUSE Darebin. Audiences can tune into the FUSE website to listen and view the works now until 29 November.
The six selected artists include: Bumpy, Coree Thorpe (Lucid Juncture), Pirritu, Culture Evolves (Brent Watkins), Monica Jasmine Karo, Dimpa.
