Jarjums Life Museum-Botanica

Deep dive into the floral worlds of Jinibara and Kabi Kabi Country with Jarjum Life Museum’s Botanica work.

Popping up at the Festival Hub garden this family friendly space will explore, play, and create with the natural wonders of Country.

Jarjum Life Museum (JLM): Botanica will connect with Traditional Owners, Elders, community members and jarjum to create a hands-on, immersive creative experience for presentation at the Horizon Festival 2023.

Exploring Country through the lens of flora, JLM Botanica will prioritize First Nations knowledges, stories, and lore to build a participatory creative work designed to engage children, their families and community.

Intertwining language, learning and play this work will be an engaging and beautiful way for people to connect with Country.
