RCC Love Letters
As part of the Regional Centre for Culture 2018, Love Letters to the Heart of Victoria was a free public event that kicked off the year-long RCC 2018 program. On Valentine’s Day locals and visitors gathered in Bendigo’s Rosalind Park for an evening celebration, sharing their love for Central Victoria. A smoking ceremony by Dja Dja Wurrung Traditional Owners welcomed visitors to the event, and attendees took the chance to write personal ‘love letters’ to the region. These messages were then incorporated into a sculpture created by Felipe Reynolds based on a design by Traditional Owner Racquel Kerr. This vibrant evening of live music, theatre, dance, and food was the perfect way to kick of a year of celebrations in the region and announce a ceremony on November 17: YAPENYA.
