Wakakirri

 

Wakakirri is a national festival that celebrates learning via the creation and sharing of stories. To be in Wakakirri schools create stories using dance, song, film, art and writing to be performed, screened and displayed to audiences across Australia. Wakakirri holds shows in capital cities and country towns where schools stories are shared with a live audience of family, friends, industry professionals and other school communities.

 

Wakakirri aims to teach children about themselves and others through the creation and sharing of stories and by this process improve student’s educational outcomes and environmental and community awareness. Established in 1992, Wakakirri is now Australia’s largest annual arts event for primary schools involving over 20,000 students in every state and territory. Live performances and online stories reach over 1 million people each year.

 

The Aboriginal word Wakakirri means ‘to dance a story’ according to Wangaaypuwan people from Cobar NSW. It was chosen to give the event a distinctly Australian feel.
