Due to unforeseen circumstances, this performance has had to be cancelled. We apologise for any inconvenience.

In Community Hall, Wala Connections returns to the NGV with a special interactive dance performance responding to this year’s NAIDOC Week theme ‘For Our Elders’. With the aim of deepening all people’s connection to Aboriginal culture, Wala Connections inspire self-expression and the celebration of First Nations Peoples’ culture through movement and dance.

About Wala Connections

Founded by Thara Brown and Nartarsha Bamblett in 2019, Wala Connections explores their Yorta Yorta ancestral connections while providing opportunities for everyone to connect to self, culture and Country. The female collective delivers workshops programs, performances and mentoring with a focus on connection through movement to provide safe spaces to learn, grow and share creatively. Through First Peoples culture, storytelling and wellbeing practices, Wala Connections utilise these knowledge systems to empower and educate individuals and communities.
