Muurrbay went along to the inaugural Boomerang Festival at Tyagarah Farm near Byron Bay, on Bundjalung country. The festival was held from Friday 4th to Sunday 6th October 2013 and we were treated to an amazing range of talented Aboriginal performers, as well as thought provoking discussions, plays and films.
Muurrbay had a language stall, and in between shows many people came to yarn with us about language. Michael Jarrett, Shaa Smith, Pauline Hooler and Maxine Jarrett ran Gumbaynggirr language workshops on both days, and inspired people to learn some language. They talked about the importance of their culture and language and few tears were shed by speakers and audience members… We look forward to coming back to Boomerang in 2014!
