‘Good to see you’ going digital

WARAMI is a Darug word meaning ‘good to see you’ however the City of Parramatta’s Warami festival is heading going digital this year.

The event, which celebrates and commemorates Indigenous culture in Parramatta, is offering a range of Aboriginal arts and crafts, language activities, a cultural walk and more online through until July 5.
Encouraging people of all backgrounds to explore what’s on offer in this year’s digital program, Lord Mayor Bob Dwyer said the Burramattagal people have called Parramatta home for more than 60,000 years.
“Warami is an event that celebrates their connection to the land and recognises that Parramatta always was and always will be an important gathering place,” he said.
“While we cannot physically come together for the Warami events this year, it’s important that as a community we continue to pay homage to our City’s past and present Indigenous population.
“Warami is a wonderful opportunity for people to learn about and experience the art, music, and culture of our local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.”
The festival will conclude with Warami Live: Burramatta NAIDOC Live Music Sessions, featuring Indigenous artists and dance groups from 12-2pm on Sunday, July 5.
However after the festival wraps up, the online content will remain live for the community to access at discoverparramatta.com/warami.
