Gathering of Mob
November 10 - November 12
Come to Camp Jungai for a weekend of Culture and Community
Hosted by Taungurung Land and Waters Council with support from VACCHO and the Federation of Victorian Traditional Owner Corporations.
Come immerse yourself in Culture, heal your spirit, yarn and celebrate with Mob.
This is open for all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Victoria, and those close to the border. Close family members (e.g. partners, children you care for) who are not Mob are welcome to attend too.
Mob can begin to arrive from 2pm Friday 10 November with a Welcome to Country and the lighting of a ceremonial fire at 6.30pm.
There will be a programme of activities such as yarning circles, basket weaving, spear throwing, ceremonial dancing, ochre face/body painting and a big gathering of all attending. It is optional for people to take part in the activities. The closing ceremony will finish at 12.30pm on Sunday 12 November and we are to depart by 2pm.
Come for as long or as little as you want. Come for a day or stay the entire weekend!
This will be a collaborative cultural experience with Community.
