Giiyong Story

0n Saturday 22 September 2018 the Giiyong Festival will take place at Jigamy, just north of Eden. It will be the South East NSW’s first multi-art form festival celebrating traditional and contemporary Aboriginal culture through dance, art, music, film, theatre, food, sport, workshops and cultural tours.

Giiyong means ‘come to welcome’ in Dhurga, the language local to the Eden and Bega area.

Les Kosez, Land and Sea Country Co-ordinator with Eden Local Aboriginal Land Council said the word reflects what the festival will represent, ‘It’s about all people coming together, celebrating our culture and sharing experiences.’ South East Arts has received Regional Partnership funding from Create NSW to produce the festival, in partnership with Twofold Aboriginal Corporation and Eden Local Aboriginal Land Council.
