2019 – Macquarie Marshes
Moorambilla artists will be traveling to immerse themselves at the Macquarie Marshes in May 2019.
2018 – Byrock Water Holes & Brewarrina Fish Traps
Moorambilla Voices artists travelled to Brewarrina Fish Traps and Byrock Water Holes for the annual Artistic Cultural Immersion.
We were delighted to work with Brad Steadman, an Ngemba man with extensive cultural knowledge, and Melissa Kirby a Wayilwan woman born and raised in Brewarrina. Her grandmother’s language lives through her and we are extremely honoured that she is sharing it with Moorambilla!
Nine Moorambilla artists in residence were part of the immersion: Artistic Director & Conductor Michelle Leonard OAM, composers Alice Chance, Kevin Barker and Josephine Gibson, Noni Carroll, photographer in residence, Jacob Williams, choreographer in residence, Sara Tinning, lantern maker, Clive Birch, speaker and Annie Berrell our Moorambilla mum. We can’t wait to develop the program further into the Baradine camps.
Stunning photography by Noni Carroll captures the landscape and the cultural experience.
Moorambilla Voices relies heavily on financial support to inspire and encourage the amazing children from the far rural and remote areas of NSW.
