Monuments – Ballarat Heritage Festival

Access info

Cap off your Ballarat Heritage Festival evenings by savouring globally renowned outdoor video installation, Monuments, by Australian artist Craig Walsh.

Moving images projected onto trees represent a synergy between the human form and the natural environment with subjects depicted drawn from Ballarat’s past. Shown daily during the festival, the story of how Wadawurrung land was changed and how Ballarat became home to a shared group of traditional owners and migrants from Chinese and European backgrounds will be shared.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
