Description Mowanjum Festival Short: 20 Year Anniversary.

Each year in July the Mowanjum Art and Culture Centre hosts the Mowanjum Festival, sharing the vibrant, living culture of the Ngarinyin, Worrorra and Wunambal peoples.

The Festival attracts thousands of visitors from across Australia, travelling to witness and take part in one of Western Australia’s largest cultural celebrations.

Performers from all ages participate in Junba or traditional dances, telling the stories of the Mowanjum people. The revival and performance of these dances are a significant moment of celebration for the local community, and deeply moving to the elders who thought they might never see those dances again.
