In the Park 

Barpirdhila and City of Yarra present: In the Park, an outdoor live music series running throughout Yarra’s iconic public parks across weekends in February 2021.

See and hear live performances from a combination of established and emerging First Nations artists, including The Merindas, Key Hoo, Birdz, Lauren Sheree, and Lil Kootsie. Each performance will occur in a different public park in the City of Yarra, in the picturesque rotundas and stages, on Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung Country. 

Barpirdhila’s vision is to develop, nurture, and support First Nations excellence within the creative industries, by creating spaces and programs for emerging and established artists. Programs are nationally-focussed, and reflective of community needs to develop skills with industry professionals and in a culturally strong and safe environment. Barpirdhila are especially dedicated to prioritising the empowerment of First Nations women and girls.

All events in this series are family friendly.
