The Yijala Yala Project is one of several projects funded by Woodside-operated Pluto LNG through a Conservation Agreement with the Commonwealth government that highlight, present, transmit, manage, conserve and research the incredible cultural heritage values of the Burrup Peninsula (Murujuga) and the Dampier Archipelago. Working alongside and guided by the traditional custodians, the Yijala Yala Project works out of Roebourne, WA and uses arts and digital media skill-building to engage young people and create desire to engage in cultural heritage maintenance and transmission, while assisting the community to interpret living cultural heritage in contemporary, innovative and creative ways. Artforms presented include theatre, music, film and interactive storybooks. It’s flagship performance piece Hipbone Sticking Out is currently touring to Roebourne, Perth and the Melbourne Festival, and The Murru Concert will open the Melbourne Festival on 10 October.
