Kumuwuki / Big Wave is the eighth Regional Arts Australia National Conference is the eight biennial conference, and will be presented by Country Arts SA in partnership with the Alexandrina Council.
To be held in Goolwa, South Australia from 18 – 21 October, the conference is the first in the event’s 14 year history to have a dual Indigenous/ non Indigenous title.
Regional Arts Australia President, Mr Lee Cole says the use of Kumuwuki, which is the Ngarrindjeri Nation name for Big Wave, highlights the significance of language in maintaining culture.
“We are extremely privileged to be granted permission by the Elders of the Ngarrindjeri Nation to use language in the naming of the conference. It reflects the Ngarrindjeri Nation’s pride towards its living culture and it also stands as an open invitation to delegates to catch the big wave of contemporary thinking and arts practice from across the nation whilst in Goolwa this October” he said.
Following the model of previous Regional Arts Australia National Conferences, Kumuwuki / Big Wave is part conference, part festival - all art.
