NOOSA FM is supporting the prevention initiatives during Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month by broadcasting information, interviews and event details throughout May, just like this one....
"Dance Out" Domestic & Family Violence
On Friday, 11th May, you’re invited to a unique event hosted by SevGen Indigenous Corporation in Eumundi. Here's what's happening:
We'll meet at the Amphitheater in the centre of town at 11am for the official welcome, followed by an inclusive, elemental dance ceremony, combining contemporary and traditional dance, to bring balance and grounding, with music, movement, paint and smoke. The ceremony will be led by Amma Reed, a descendant of King Bungaree (of the Kuringgai people of the Broken Bay area), who guided Matthew Flinders on his circumnavigation of Australia. Amma was special guest on the Monday Magazine last Monday and you can hear the podcast of her interview from the link at the end of this story.
Then, around midday, across the road at the Deadly Espresso Cafe for coffee, tea and a bit of tucker, community conversation and good company, as we seek prevention measures for DFV; and unconditional love and connection for those affected. If you wish, you can sing a song, say some words, or simply seek some solace in this special space.
All are welcome, and to help us be best prepared, please pre-book on Facebook (and please only click "Going" if you are, or click "Interested" if this appeals to you so we can advise you of future dates).
That’s this Friday, 11th of May - Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month Dance Out DFV", at the Deadly Espresso Cafe Eumundi from 11 am.
This event is proudly supported by NOOSA FM and the SeveGen Indigenous Corporation with funding from the Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women.
