Artwork (detail) by Uncle Mark Brown, Bunurong Artist.

Celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art and culture in a welcoming event at Dandenong’s iconic Drum Theatre.

See the stunning visual Welcome messages created by four local Aboriginal and Bunurong artists; Adam Magennis, Kylie Armstrong, Lakeisha Clayton and Uncle Mark Brown for the Drum Wominjeka flags, now flying in the theatre’s entrance. 

Wominjeka means Welcome in languages of the Boonwurrung Bunurong peoples and Woi Wurrung Wurundjeri peoples of the Kulin Nation. Each artist has created an original flag that conveys a heartfelt welcome message and reflects what performing arts mean to their culture and community.

Join us for a unique opportunity to meet the artists and engage in inspiring conversation with members of our Bunurong and local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community. 

This free event will be held on Thursday 21 March at the Drum Theatre 12pm-1.30pm, marking National Close the Gap Day and Harmony Day, both important days for the Greater Dandenong community. 

National Close the Gap Day acknowledges the ongoing strength and resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in sustaining the world’s oldest living cultures and it advocates for health equality for all. Harmony Day celebrates our cultural diversity.

The Drum Theatre and Council’s Arts and Cultural Development team proudly support this event.
