The scene won’t be limited to music, with Uncle Archie also showcasing his ‘Kitchen Table Yarn’ at the festival along with a number of special guests.
“For me personally, that’s huge,” says Uncle Archie. “I was taken as a child from my mother’s country when I was barely two years old. Returning to my community and being able to showcase our culture on the Archie Roach Foundation stage would not have happened if I had not found my way back to my people.
“The local Maar Nation community programmed the scene and we look forward to presenting this exceptional moment. I am very grateful to RISE and the Port Fairy Folk Festival for supporting this initiative.
PFFF, taking place in the country of Peek Whurrong, will also celebrate over 60,000 years of local Maar Nation culture with traditional dance, art and songwriting workshops, conversations and a yarn circle throughout the 4 day event.
