It’s been a minute since fans have seen Thelma on stage and with word of new music in the works, the hype is starting to generate once more around the songwriter. Similarly, Kaiit’s profile on the local Melbourne scene has been propelled by impressive live performances in recent months, while Mojo Juju has continuously proved to be one of the city’s strongest and most captivating performers.
Alongside the performances, punters can also visit the Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre, where a brand new exhibition is on display. Featuring works by 12 First Peoples women from Victoria, the Because of Her, We Can exhibition will provide a great insight into our indigenous history and the history of NAIDOC too.
