The Cultural Café’s Valuing the ARTS Program

Marli – Noongar: Art for every story, A story for every culture & place

Aboriginal name - The Noongar word Marli means black swan. Another suggested Aboriginal meaning for Mahlee/Marli is said to mean old ancient tree.

Creative industries are empowered by creative practitioners.

Now, the culture café of Victoria will be an even bigger, bolder champion and investor in Australian arts and creativity.

The time has come to mark a new beginning for The Culture Café’s strong commitment to ARTS and culture.

With great joy, we are delighted to present to you the realization of the Marli – Noongar – Cultural Café’s Valuing the ARTS Program.

Marli – Noongar: Art for every story, A story for every culture & place

is a creative space that binds the community through the common fabric of the classical heritage Arts, Music, and Dance Forms. It is certainly a tribute to not only all Asian and India’s glorious legacy of all ARTS , traditions, and heritage but we also aim to include western ART forms as well.

Marli – Noongar will forge even stronger connections with the Creatives, public, private, and commercial sectors. This initiative will enable us to connect Australians, Migrant stories with audiences and build the ARTS marketplace for those stories to be shared on a national and international scale and connecting to our rich culture to the world and future generations.

In addition it will enable us to effectively support the sector through our existing programs to deliver greater impact and broader reach in remote regional areas including youth and community arts.

The CREATIVE Marli – Noongar is seen as a platform to spotlight ALL arts and culture at its best, both for the audience and the artists.
