From 3-18 September, Darebin’s streets, parks, venues, theatres, galleries and public spaces will be transformed by FUSE into zones of art, culture and creativity.
City of Darebin’s multi-arts festival FUSE kicks off the Spring event with Ganbu Gulin, a vibrant celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island culture, re-imagined and curated by FUSE curator-in-residence, Sofii Belling-Harding. Co-presented by the Wurundjeri Land Council, Ganbu Gulin (meaning ‘One Mob’) celebrates and recognises First Nations peoples. This free event invites all residents, old and new, to be officially welcomed onto Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung Country.
Ganbu Gulin shares its name with Daniel King’s documentary, which tells the story of Darebin Council’s decision to cease observing January 26 as Australia Day. The event has evolved from the film to become an inclusive annual program and a platform for Traditional Owners to welcome new citizens in their own way.
Join us for a vibrant celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island culture, re-imagined and curated by FUSE’s Curator-In-Residence, Sofii Belling-Harding.
Ganbu Gulin is FREE, and there's so much to explore.
• Participate in our sunset Walk on Country for a powerful show of solidarity.
• Meet Aboriginal community leaders and business owners.
• Explore stories of endurance and survival, and open your heart to a lifelong connection to Country.
• Enjoy live music and performance.
Ganbu Gulin: an event for every Darebin citizen.
