Community needs to have a culturally appropriate place where we can gather, heal, yarn, celebrate, teach, and share cultural knowledge and stories. It’s these practices that support and strengthen our cultural identity and spirituality.
Based at Forestec in Kalimna West, construction has commenced on the Wangin Amphitheatre, an all-weather outdoor hub for the Gunaikurnai and Aboriginal community to gather and practice culture.
With the building design complete and the planning permit approved (a major milestone!), we are working to design a lighting and audio-visual set-up to host a variety of productions into the future.
All going to plan and without any major interruptions, the work should be complete late 2023.
This project has received funding from the Victorian Government Aboriginal Community Infrastructure Program and the Regional Infrastructure Fund.
