Recently, Aboriginal Way took a trip to Warraparinga to drop into the Living Kaurna Cultural Centre, run by Southern Cultural Immersion.
Warraparinga, meaning ‘Windy Place’ in Kaurna language, is a nature reserve in Bedford Park at Marion, and a site of cultural significance for the Kaurna people. It is associated with the Tjilbruke Dreaming story and the beginning of the Tjilbruke Trail.
Southern Cultural Immersion hold musical performances and markets against this backdrop. They also offer cultural training, community engagement, art and cultural tours alongside their gallery and shop space, which stock artworks and products from Aboriginal artists and businesses, , as well as merch of their own.
Aboriginal Way visited the Centre very early in its operations last year, so it was good to go back and speak with its owner Corey Turner, and events and marketing director, Eve Gregory, to see how the Centre has evolved since then.
