What better way to kick-off the festive season than celebrating it Koorie style.
Join us in partnership with Federation Square to experience the magic of A Very Koorie Krismas with free activities for families throughout the day and performances from Wergaia and Wemba Wemba singer songwriter Alice Skye; Yorta Yorta and Dja Dja Wurrung singer songwriter Carissa Watts; Indigenous dance group Culture Evolves; the Djirri Djirri Dance Group; and IHHP (Indigenous Hip Hop Projects).
There will also be a range of free workshops for kids and families on the day with a special appearance by Koorie Klaus at 3.30pm.
At the same time, browse through the Koorie Krismas Market which will showcase art, craft and design from the Victorian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community. Here you will be able to buy unique Koorie Krismas gifts of exquisite jewellery, hand woven baskets, artwork, clothes, native bush products and much more. Featured stalls include: Haus of Dizzy; Gammin Threads; Miss Emily Aboriginal Arts; Karroong Craft; Yarn Strong Sista; and shopKOORIE along with many others.
The Koorie Art Show is presented in partnership with Federation Square. The Koorie Heritage Trust also acknowledges the very generous philanthropic support of Krystyna Campbell-Pretty and Family as well as the Jon Faine Farewell Broadcast Fundraising Appeal.
