Invitation to Gariwerd Traditional Owners to stage gigs and art workshops at Brambuck

Brambuk is about strengthening, celebrating and sharing the cultures and heritage of Gariwerd’s Traditional Owners.

Barengi Gadjin Land Council, Eastern Maar Aboriginal Corporation, Gunditj Mirring Traditional Owners Aboriginal Corporation and Parks Victoria are seeking interested Traditional Owner artists to share their story and heritage at Brambuk with visitors and community members, through playing a concert or hosting an arts / craft workshop.

We invite interested artists to register to deliver an arts activity at Brambuk during Spring 2021


Concerts

A mix of experienced and emerging artists will be selected to conduct a series of small, intimate concerts in venues around the Brambuk precinct (the cultural centre is currently closed for maintenance works).

Music can be either contemporary or traditional, or a blend of both. We welcome applications from solo artists and up to 4-piece bands.

Gigs will involve 2 x 1 hour sets for each artist / band (one band per day). Performances by featured musicians / bands will be scheduled predominantly on weekends and school holidays from September to early November 2021.


Workshops

We are seeking practitioners of traditional, or contemporary interpretations of traditional, arts / craft practices who are experienced in delivering workshops.

Workshops will involve 2 x 2-hour sessions on the one day per artist, with small groups of up to 20 participants. Workshops delivered by featured artists will be scheduled predominantly on weekends and school holidays from September to early November 2021.
