‘To Come Back” is the meaning for the new feature at Barangaroo, WELLAMA, a Cadigal word, its an invitation to experience the spirit of EORA country through art.
Created by artists Alison Page and Nik Lachajczak, Wellama is a celebration of ritual, ceremony and story practised on Country since time immemorial. It welcomes visitors to Gadigal Country and pays respect to the Traditional Custodians of this land. The work is not intended to ever to replace the traditional welcome by elders, but to strengthen the meaning of that ceremony and enhance people’s understanding of its importance among all Australians.
