Artist Vicki Couzens created the campfire, Leempeeyt Weeyn’ for the inaugural The Light in Winter program nine years ago and it has burned brightly each year since.

From 15-21 June, Leempeeyt Weeyn’ will burn 24 hours a day as it hosts a week of lunchtime and dusk performances and activations.

From the powerful vocals of opera singer Shauntai Batzke to the mixed beats of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists from DJ Sovereign Trax, the whip cracking ways of Agus Riyanto from Java, traditional farsi poems and the Koorie Heritage Trust Series, Leempeeyt Weeyn’ is a fireside hub of cultural collaboration and celebration. DJ Nurra (James Henry), Rob Bundle, Uncle Larry Walsh, Muma Doesa and Benny Walker, amongst others, will also perform throughout the week.

The campfire program will open on Monday 15 June with a Welcome to Country and Yoonggamateeyt Manakuwiya – Offerings of hope. Vicki Couzens invites The Light in Winter participating groups, artists, elders and community members to bring an offering of hope and light to the Campfire. On 21 June, the offerings will be burned, symbolising ritual, renewal and reflection. The ceremony will be accompanied and followed by music from singer/songwriter Corey Theatre, an artist who uses music as a medium to revive the Gunditjamara language family, which hasn’t been spoken fluently for 200 hundred years. The bluesy, soulful sounds of singer/songwriter Illana Atkinson will conclude the evening.

Full program:

The Light in Winter is a free, three week program of art, music and performance at Federation Square under the artistic direction of arts luminary Robyn Archer AO.
