Melbourne team attends Tanderrum
The Melbourne Festival was opened with the annual Kulin Tanderrum, the meeting of the five clans of the Kulin Nation: Wurundjeri, Boon Wurrung, Taungurung, Dja Dja Wurrung and Wadawurrung, to acknowledge the lore of the creator spirit Bunjil, Welcome To Country and pay respects to the vibrant living culture of this country. Fusing music, performance and storytelling with cultural traditions that stretch back over 40,000 years Tanderrum celebrates the proud and living culture of the land’s traditional owners.
Led by Sodexo’s newly appointed Reconciliation Action Plan Manager, Mark Thomson, employees from the National Support Centre were given an opportunity to attend the vibrant community event held at Melbourne’s Federation Square. Tanderrum is a great opportunity for our employees to engage and take part in the understanding and appreciation of the local land and the diverse clans that make up the Kulin Nation.
