Jumoo (Smoking)

Jumoo
(Smoking)

4 Sept

To open this year’s Brisbane Festival, we invite you to be part of a very special, city-wide smoking ceremony.

Through stories, song, and smoke, journey to the ancient world of Australia as we honour and pay respect to the Brisbane Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island communities.

‘Jumoo’ means ‘smoking’ in the Turrbal language. To open this year’s Brisbane Festival, we invite you to be part of a very special, city-wide smoking ceremony.

This event will be performed by the First People of Brisbane, who have occupied this country for more than 65,000 years. 

Under the creative direction and Custodianship of Tribal Experiences Managing Director and Yuggera and Turrbal man Shannon Ruska, these smoking ceremonies are a cleansing and connection to country to lead us peacefully and respectfully into September.

It’s time to reset, refocus and cleanse.
