Invitation to Nimbin dreaming

“Welcome to Nimbin's first ever Dreaming Festival, which will be made up of dedicated people from all over the Northern Rivers who will make this a reality,” Auntie Vivienne Laurie-King (pictured) says to the wider community. “We need your support for our youth and younger generation so that we can teach respect through art, teachings and healing. Hope to see you all here.”

The Nimbin Aboriginal Community is hosting a weekend gathering at the Nimbin Showgrounds with cultural workshops for youth, Friday to Sunday, October 30-November 1.

Alongside traditional spear and stone tool making, painting, dance, bush food, didge making/playing workshops, and live music, there'll be activities for Elders and for younger children.

'Bayahn ngubu jan gu' means 'today for tomorrow' and this is the theme of the festival. It's hoped that it'll become an annual event bringing youth - Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal - together to share in cultural learning and activities.

Entry is $20 (including camping, shared meals on Friday and Saturday nights) and $30 for a family (including camping plus $5 per person to share in meals).
