Each year, we come together as a Faculty of Fine Arts and Music for Lighting the Wilin, a beloved annual event in our calendar which marks National Reconciliation Week and the anniversary of the founding of the Wilin Centre for Indigenous Arts and Culture.
We invite all University of Melbourne students, staff, and our broader community to join us for this important event.
On the morning of 30 May, we’ll gather in the Wilin Garden to recommit to Reconciliation and to recognise the vital contribution that the Wilin Centre makes within the University, in an event led by Acting Dean Tiriki Onus, Head of the Wilin Centre.
This year, Lighting the Wilin coincides with the beginning of the 2023 Indigenous Mapping Workshop, which is bringing together 150 First Nations participants from all over the country to the Southbank campus.
After Lighting the Wilin, we invite you to join us in the Fiona and Sidney Myer Gallery to enjoy morning tea and the newly opened exhibitions:
Sand and Stars, featuring video and sculpture by Gail Mabo
Falmi Ngerrmewuritytye Pupunyi (The women made these mats) new fibre works from Durrmu Arts
Please arrive at the Wilin Garden by 8.30AM for the beginning of this event. If you are unable to make it to Lighting the Wilin, morning tea will be available from 9.15AM – 10.15AM at the gallery.
Please register for this event via Eventbrite so that we’ve got accurate numbers for catering.
