Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.

  • Faith in the possibility of impossibility. Embodied compassion, free from the pull of gravity.  These are some of the meditations that have informed 'Quiver'—a gentle psycho-physical exploration of space with dancers and musicians from Tony Yap Company.  A performance of paradoxes—spontaneity within structure, ease within difficulty, sacredness within profanity, gravity within levitation, strength within frailty—this event has been developed as part of the M_Curators initiative, made possible by our presenting partner Bloomberg Philanthropies.  ​Register online to attend in person, at MPavilion Parkade
