Leempeeyt Weeyn' means 'campfire' in the Gunditjmara language group of Western Victoria. The campfire will be officially lit in Federation Square on Saturday 5th August at 6pm, celebrated with an Indigenous Welcome to Country. The campfire will then burn continuously for three weeks. Over the course of Fed Square's winter program, the fire will become the centre of live performances, storytelling, learning and sharing, being a symbol of resistance and a place for coming together, artistically and spiritually. Events held around the campfire will include a Kids Campfire Program on Sunday, 6th August from 3pm – 5pm as well as many more. This is a free event with all welcome to attend.
