August 2017

Last month I had the incredible opportunity to travel to Gove, where the Garma Festival is held each year. Garma is a festival that broadly aims to close the gap between indigenous and non-indigenous Australians through cross-cultural exchange and awareness. Established by the Yothu Yindi Foundation, it specifically promotes Yolngu culture and aids in enriching their social and economic circumstances.

A spiritual experience felt by the heart

Earlier this month, I headed to the Gulkula ceremonial grounds in north-east Arnhem Land with three other University of Sydney students, to act as an Indigenous Student Leader at the Garma Youth Forum. As Student Leaders, we helped to mentor the school students who were participating in the Youth Forum, as part of the annual Garma Festival of Indigenous Culture.
