Join Dja Dja Wurrung Elder Uncle Rick Nelson as he welcomes you to Country, and names the Tammia'long Room at Castlemaine Library

About this event

Tammia'long = Quiet in Dja Dja Wurrung language.

It's the perfect word to describe our new meeting space - a quiet room to work, meet, study, read and reflect.

Join us as we name the Tammia'long Room with a Welcome to Country by Dja Dja Wurrung Elder Uncle Rick Nelson, who gave us the name Tammia'long.

This will be followed by a cuppa, and some delicious wattle seed biscuits made by the Murnong Mummas.

We also invite you to contribute a paper hand print 'feather' to our Bunjil - a community art project that will be proudly installed in the Tammia'long Room.
