Join us at the Meeka Moorart Full Moon Ceremony to watch the first full moon of Birak rise. This is an Aboriginal-led cultural event featuring song and dance celebrating the moon.
Since 2019 we have held a full moon celebration alongside the Danjoo Koorliny Social Impact Summit, immersing ourselves in nature as we celebrate and watch Meeka (moon) rise. This year we will watch Meeka rise from a special new location, at Gaboodjoolup, South Perth Foreshore. The festivities will begin at 6pm, with the moon set to rise at 7:02pm. Please feel free to bring a picnic and a rug or chairs to sit on the grass. There will be a karla (fire) to keep us toasty, and a designated Elders space.
Together we will be singing the evolving Meeka Moorart Full Moon song, recorded with Dr Noel Nannup OAM, Dr Richard Walley OAM, Farley Garlett, Carol Innes AM, Della Rae Morrison, Ezra Jacobs-Smith, Elisha Jacobs-Smith and Kobi Morrison, along with John Butler, Iain Grandage, Zal Kanga-Parabia and others, mixed by Kav Temperley (Eskimo Joe).
