Event description
Art, science and ancient knowledges come together through storytelling, projections and cultural dance, at this family friendly event.

About this Event

Come down to the Marrambidya/Murrumbidgee River for a family friendly event that explores art, science and ancient knowledges through storytelling, projections and cultural dance.

This performance has been created through a partnership between the Clontarf Academy at Narrandera High School, the Narrandera Fisheries Centre, the Cad Factory and Barkindji elders.

In 2019, when the tragic Menindee Fish Kill event saw one million fish die on the Barka/Darling River, the Narrandera Fisheries Centre was responsible for the rescue and care of the surviving native fish, including the breeding of over 60,000 new fish to be returned to the Barka/Darling River.

During 2020, the Cad Factory and the Clontarf Academy worked with the Narrandera Fisheries Centre to understand and share the connections between our two different river systems and how we can come together to understand our world through a sharing of arts, science and ancient knowledges.

We participated in breeding and caring for the fingerlings before traveling to Menindee to hand them back to Barkindji Aunties and River Rangers.

This very special performance shares our deep and emotional journey, where cross-cultural relationships are enacting reconciliation by honouring all life forms and their ancient connection to place.
