Join us on an extraordinary journey through time and culture in Fitzroy with the Yalinguth app.
Starting at Kirrip Place, we'll enjoy a cup of coffee before diving into this immersive experience.
Yalinguth, meaning 'yesterday' in the Woi Wurrung language, is an app that transports users through Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander oral traditions. Together, with audio cues and a simple map, we'll uncover stories, songs, and poems within Ngár-go/Fitzroy, beginning from the historically significant Gertrude Street.
This incredible app is more than just a stroll through history, it's an immersive audio experience that honors the rich oral traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The app has been developed around Gertrude Street in Ngár-go/Fitzroy, a highly significant area for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Rights Movement. Within the app, you'll not only hear the beautiful songs and stories told by elders, but also the sounds of local protests, and birds that once filled the Melbourne air.
All sessions will meet at City campus, Building 10, Level 5 (Kirrip Place, on Bowen St above Streat Cafe)
