Join us and explore Fitzroy with Yalinguth, a geo-located app, with stories and sounds that will take you on a journey through time.
We will meet at Kirrip Place (Garden Building Level 5, above Streat Cafe on Bowen Street), and we will take a tram to explore Fitzroy with Yalinguth, a geo-located app, with stories and sounds that will take you on a journey through time.
In the Woi Wurrung language Yalinguth means ‘yesterday’. The Yalinguth app is an audio experience reflecting the oral tradition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Within the spatialised sound environment you navigate by audio cues, with a simple map showing your location and where to find stories, songs and poems.
The first Yalinguth location has been developed around Gertrude Street in Ngár-go/Fitzroy, a highly significant area for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Rights movement.
Following this, we will go back to Lune for some croissants and chats.
All events will run from 10.30am – 12pm.
