Shearwater Festival Shearwater Festival

The 3rd annual Shearwater Festival is a creative, cultural and environmental initiative that brings communities together to celebrate the migration of the short-­‐tailed shearwaters. The Shearwater Festival uses the arts to build community, to raise environmental awareness and to generate positive stories about Indigenous cultural regeneration and creative language revival.

The Festival brings Indigenous and non-­‐Indigenous community members together through the arts and through a shared love and appreciation of the environment.

One million shearwaters have their rookeries on Phillip Island. At the Festival, the short-­‐tailed shearwaters are celebrated as symbols of creative, cultural and environmental interconnectedness. The Festival involves school children, creative artists, musicians, Indigenous Elders, community members and visitors.
