Overview

Ballun Gawrehma: River Stories

Join local Kombumerri man Lann Levinge for an immersive story telling experience for schools.

Multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, producer, director and creative designer, Lann guides you through culturally significant sites, sharing local history passed down by elders.

Starting at Wulabora, a sharing and gathering space celebrating Kombumerri history, you'll delve into family stories, local history, Jenny Graham and the Keeper of the Light, interwoven with dreamtime tales and environmental wisdom.

The sensory experience also involves interaction with tangible indigenous artefacts, clothing, weapons, tools and immersive soundscapes captured and composed by Lann.

‘I’m loving the journey and path that I’m on, discovering new ways to help and develop a new generation of language and cultural warriors, creating awareness of and connecting indigenous culture, especially the Kombumerri ways and the Yugambeh Language, to everyone through visual art, music and dance.’ 

This 45-minute experience can be tailored to your curriculum focus and age of students, contact education@hota.com.au to discuss further. This tour is open to school groups only.
