Bunuru Summit – Culture

Bunuru Summit – Culture

The Bunuru Social Impact Summit is the pinnacle of the Festival. The previous Summits have inspired large-scale systems change, designed to help us all become better carers of everything through shifting cultural, social, environmental and economic outcomes.

The Bunuru Social Impact Summit will bring together diverse thought leaders, change-makers, artists, and innovators from across Western Australia. They will present their unique perspectives, experiences, and insights to explore how Aboriginal culture has, since colonialism, gone from surviving to thriving.

For 2024, our theme is Culture: Survival, Resilience, Strength & Celebration. 2024 also marks five years since the inception of Danjoo Koorliny, the halfway point of a 10-year journey towards the 2029 bicentenary.

The Summit is a celebration of Aboriginal culture, values, and achievements. The conversations will be culturally affirming and will challenge the status quo. New ways to address social, economic, and environmental challenges will be found while building and strengthening how Aboriginal people want to be represented, both now and beyond Danjoo Koorliny's 2029 vision.

Our celebration will feature a series of engaging and diverse speaker sessions, cultural workshops and experiences, panel discussions, performances and inspiring keynote presentations. It will focus on a wide range of cultural themes and community-led activities for everyone to participate in as we continue our journey to drive change for future generations.

The Bunuru Summit will be held at the beautiful Poolgarla Parkland, Kings Park. We have some exciting add-ons like Bush Tucker / Talks & Tasting by Dale Tilbrook, Bush Medicine with Vivienne Hansen and Male & Female Cultural Walking Tours.

Meeka Moorart Full Moon Ceremony

Meeka Moorart Full Moon Ceremony

Watch the rising of the final full moon of Bunuru over the Darling Range at Meeka Moorart – Full Moon Ceremony, an Aboriginal-led cultural event featuring soul-stirring music, dance and captivating storytelling that never fails to delight.

In 2024, Meeka Moorart will be accompanied by a Maker's Market showcasing the talents of Aboriginal makers, artists and small businesses from across WA.

Since 2019 we have held a full moon celebration as part of the Danjoo Koorliny Festival, immersing ourselves in nature as we celebrate and watch Meeka (moon) rise. This year we will watch Meeka rise from Gaboodjoolup, South Perth Foreshore. The festivities will begin at 5pm, with the moon set to rise at 6:24pm.

Please feel free to bring a picnic and a rug or chairs to sit on the grass. There will be a karla (fire) to keep us toasty, and a designated Elders space.

Together we will be singing the evolving Meeka Moorart Full Moon song, which has a new verse added to it each year. The song was recorded with Dr Noel Nannup OAM, Dr Richard Walley OAM, Farley Garlett, Carol Innes AM, Della Rae Morrison, Ezra Jacobs-Smith, Elisha Jacobs-Smith and Kobi Morrison, along with John Butler, Iain Grandage, Zal Kanga-Parabia and others, mixed by Kav Temperley (Eskimo Joe).

Join us on the banks of the Derbal Yerrigan (Swan River) for this immersive Noongar-led cultural event featuring local artists.

This all-inclusive event is suitable for families and friends and is an alcohol-free event.

DV-alert 2-day First Nations Foundations workshop

DV-alert 2-day First Nations Foundations workshop

DV-alert is a nationally recognised training program with training and assessment delivered by Lifeline Australia and approved third parties on behalf of Lifeline Australia (RTO 88036). The program is funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services as a key initiative under the National Plan to End Violence against Women and Children 2022-2032.

Since 2007, we have been working to build the knowledge and capability of frontline workers to reduce and prevent domestic and family violence.

DV-alert is led by experienced trainers dedicated to ending violence against women and children. Our workshops provide a safe space for frontline workers to learn, connect and be empowered to recognise and respond confidently to those in crisis.

The First Nations Foundations workshop is for frontline workers to learn how to recognise the signs of family violence, respond appropriately, and refer to support services relevant to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. It covers the nature and scope, patterns and impacts of family violence, what to consider for diverse groups, communication skills, safety planning, referral pathways and more.

Morning Tea, Lunch and Afternoon Tea is provided
