About the Event
The theme for National Reconciliation Week this year is Be a Voice for Generations, encouraging all Australians to be a voice for reconciliation through storytelling.
Galup is a virtual reality experience about the history of Lake Monger in Perth. It was created by Noongar theatre-maker Ian Wilkes and film-maker Poppy van Oorde-Grainger with an oral history from Elder Doolann-Leisha Eatts about a massacre at the lake. This powerful experience explores the transformative impact of truth-telling, examines the destructive nature of colonisation and brings people together for connection and healing.
