ANU’s first Australian Research Council Discovery Indigenous Awardee, Mr Wanta Patrick, has returned to ANU after directing the 2012 Milpirri Festival in the remote town of Lajamanu in Australia’s Tanami Desert.

Based on the theme of Pulyaranyi, the winds of change that stoke the fire, drew together the strengths and hopes of Warlpiri elders and youths in a spectacular music and dance performance with over than 200 performers celebrating what it means to live with and upon the Australian land.

Mr Patrick will next speak at the 11th Symposium on Indigenous Music and Dance at Manning Clark House on 1 December 2012, and will discuss his role as Creative Director of the Milpirri Festival in his keynote address for the 35th Annual Conference of the Musicological Society of Australia at the ANU School of Music on 4 December 2012.
