Australiyaniality aims to explore Australia's wellbeing. The key word liyan is a Yawuru word that relates to Aboriginal peoples' view of their wellbeing. It is about the way they feel about themselves and relationship with their community.

27 Artists have come together from different disciplines and cultural backgrounds to interrogate their own Australian identity and explore what a better Australian identity would look like. Can it be re-shaped? What is good? What needs to change? What is our collective liyan? How do we materialise all of this into real action?

For this special program Rev is screening some of the best and most challenging Australian works in produced in recent years—and we can hardly wait to bring them to big screen in the highest of fidelity.

For your viewing pleasure we present:

In September 2017 over 30 artists in the field of music and visual art converged in the heart of west Pilbara for a week of creation, recording and collaboration in the historic town of Cossack (Bajinhurrba).

It was a life changing experience where these artists experienced many of the treasures of the West Pilbara—its history, landscapes, culture and people and sought to reflect this experience through the creation of songs, artwork, poetry and film. This was done in the spirit of exposing and giving back to this amazing part of the world and so it is with much love and excitement that many of these artists returned to the Pilbara in May 2018, for a concert, film screening, gallery show and immersive workshops in a showcase of the magic that was uncovered.
