Award-winning Australian author Bruce Pascoe will visit the Wimmera for National Harmony Day. Having featured on national television, radio and in print media Bruce has authored more than 20 fiction, non-fiction books and children’s books. Among these is his highly acclaimed 2014 novel Dark Emu, which won 2016 Book of the Year in the NSW Premier’s Literary Awards.

"Dark Emu talks about the fact that Aboriginal people were the first people in the world to make bread, 15,000 years in advance of the Egyptians and this is something that we could be proud of," Bruce says. "We've got the oldest art in the world, we've got the oldest tool manufacture in the world, these are important facts – we should all share in our pride that this country was a leader in human development."

Barengi Gadjin Land Council and Wimmera CMA are thrilled to host this cultural experience like no other, which honours our region’s connection to country. The event will also feature a performance and smoking ceremony by the Wotjobaluk Dancers, a multicultural supper prepared by OASIS Wimmera and much more.
