Waymaleh: Rise up and Speak
Join us for Waymaleh: Rise Up and Speak, the 2024 professional development on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and perspectives in the Arts, presented by HOTA Education.
Waymaleh (pronounced ‘Why-ma-lair'), means rise up and speak. Use your voice to support your students and community.
This annual event has been crafted in collaboration with local Yugambeh artists to offer educators insight into the connections between People, Culture, and Country for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, as expressed through art and community, and how these contribute to identity formation.
The event will feature talks from Elder and Academic Candice Kruger, First Nations Educator’s, and Linguists, in addition to a traditional welcome and smoking ceremony.
Afternoon sessions include a panel discussion and hands-on workshops in Dance, Music, and Visual Art all with practicing artists on country.
