2018 National Indigenous Fire Workshop


The 2018 National Indigenous Fire Workshop is a celebration of cultural fire knowledge and practice. For the past nine years the National Indigenous Fire Workshops have been held in Cape York, 2018 celebrates Bringing the Good Fire to the South Coast and will be held at Bundanon Trust Reserve in NSW.

This is an important and unique event that continues the journey of the Cape York fire workshop series by rebuilding fire pathways across Australia. The event aims to strengthen the Indigenous cultural fire knowledge base and build invaluable partnerships.

The workshop will be an inspiring, engaging and informative three day event that will showcase Indigenous-led fire projects across Australia and will provide mentoring and training to people in Indigenous fire management and cultural practices.

The Cultural Fire Masterclass will form the first two workshop days and will focus on practical, hands on Indigenous-led fire training and mentoring for aspiring and practicing fire practitioners. The last day of the workshop will be open to public to attend an all-day celebration with workshops and entertainment that brings art and fire together. This Open Day will ensure that the wider community will get the opportunity to embrace the practice of cultural fire through fire making, food, music, art and cultural family activities.

Hosted by Mudjingaalbaraga Firesticks and Bundanon Trust.
