YIRRAMBOI is Australia’s premier First Nations arts and cultural festival. Every two years, YIRRAMBOI Festival will fill the city of Melbourne in May with an exciting program of free and low-cost events across music, dance, theatre, film, exhibitions, markets, fashion parades, family-friendly events, talks and symposiums.
YIRRAMBOI means ‘tomorrow’ in the shared local languages of the Boonwurrung and Woiwurrung peoples. The Festival presents a future-focused celebration of the sophistication, diversity and continuous evolution of the longest living culture in the world.
The 2021 YIRRAMBOI Festival marks the second program from Creative Director Caroline Martin, a proud Boonwurrung and Wemba Wemba woman.
