THE WANGURRI GALLERY

Virtual Reality prototype presentation viewings

Working with Virtual Heritage researcher Kevin Lucas (MQ) and the Goŋ Wanhurr Aboriginal Corporation, artist and senior lawman Tommy Riyakurray Munyarryun and his brother Djakapurra Munyarryun (Bangarra) are bringing the oldest storytelling tradition of their Yolŋu culture together with the newest technologies of Virtual Reality. This innovative project, run through Arnhem Land-based community organization Goŋ Wanhurr, suggests a new form of Indigenous heritage engagement. One that speaks to Closing the Gap and Indigenous Reconciliation Action Plans. Through this approach, it seeks to engage the outside world with a remote homeland, through a both-ways approach.

By engaging community in the management of Heritage collections through new technology, it offers Training, Education, Governance and Technology-based programs. By merging living Cultural Practice with Preservation and Archiving of traditional Yolŋu knowledge it offers a pathway that addresses key issues of the MGA’s Indigenous Roadmap Project including Cultural maintenance, recognition and protection; Remote Training and Education leading to community cultural Employment, and further, an opportunity for overcoming the Digital Divide. Run through homeland-based Goŋ Wanhurr’s network of community, regional and national Strategic Partnerships, the Wangurri Gallery project defines a program of Yolŋu-led Mentorship and Learning-On-Country Intergenerational engagements that speak to the future of Yolŋu communities.
