Aunty Ruby Hunter proudly wore a colourful, beaded and feathered headband. She said it represented ‘yesteryear, yesterday and today’. As YIRRAMBOI looks to tomorrow we reflect on the path paved by strong Aboriginal women like Aunty Ruby Hunter.
The passing of Aunty Ruby had a deep and profound effect on everyone she touched with her song and ceremony. To honour her memory, Arts Centre Melbourne and YIRRAMBOI are delighted to be presenting Remembering Ruby, an exhibition of never before seen cherished objects and keepsakes belonging to Aunty Ruby Hunter, which have generously been provided by the Hunter/Roach family.
YIRRAMBOI is also calling on you, her fans and followers, to contribute to the exhibition by providing an image or images you may have that express your connection with Aunty Ruby. This can be anything from an image of a concert ticket stub, artworks, or words and memories that express the strength and beauty of spirit she shared.
Your digital contribution may be selected for the exhibition by the curators of the exhibition.
Maximum file size 6MB.
