Mapali - Dawn Gathering at Bernie Foreshore

Mapali - Dawn Gathering
Bernie Foreshore

Once more, our North West community will unite to celebrate the break of day with mapali – Dawn Gathering. This stirring Welcome to Country will mark the opening of our 2021 Festival as the sun rises over the Burnie foreshore.
Created and narrated by artist and cultural leader David mangenner Gough, mapali – ‘gathering’ – will celebrate our palawa creation story: how moinee, the great creator, made lutruwita/Tasmania.
Movement director Adam Wheeler (Tasdance), music director Yann Ng (percussionist), and Goldberg Aberline Studio work with local artists, community groups, and schools to create a special event bringing together hundreds of performers from our Tasmanian Aboriginal community and beyond – elders, singers, dancers, drummers, and visual artists.
Share the dawn with us. Connect with your lutruwita/Tasmania community as together, we celebrate the spirit of our heart-shaped island.
