Through a Distant Lens explores the forgotten story of the Japanese in pre-war Australia. Created and written by award winning photographer and performance-maker Mayu Kanamori, this multi-disciplinary work examines the life of one of northern Australia’s most fascinating historical characters.
Now in its 44th year Shinju Matsuri - Festival of the Pearl is established as the longest running and diverse cultural festival in the northwest. True to form and its community roots Shinju Matsuri is always looking for new ways to include the community, this year is no different with the concerted effort to tap into our young local talent. The Shinju Matsuri Board is pleased to announce the appointment of Yum Yum & Delicious as managers of the festival for 2014. They are a unique boutique business based in Broome, specialising in Consulting Services, Inspired Events and Special Projects.
The Shinju Matsuri board is confident the Shinju Matsuri Festival of the Pearl will be an exciting festival this year. Sammy the Dragon will be awakened on Friday 5th September to open the 2014 festival, which will run for 10 days, culminating in the Festival Finale on Sunday 14th September. The volunteer board is currently working on developing a program of events which honours the community essence of Shinju Matsuri.
