The Fremantle Biennale’s iconic drone light show and sound experience, First Lights, travels to the foreshore of Geraldton this July, illuminating the night sky to share ancient stories of place.

This epic spectacle of light, movement and sound has toured across Australia and will now take flight with a fleet of nearly 200 drones creating First Lights – Winthu Wangga (Wind Talk Lights).

Created by acclaimed Yamatji poet Dr Charmaine Papertalk Green with artist Nicole Dickerson, First Lights – Winthu Wangga tells the many stories of the winthu wangga (wind) as it flows and connects across Yamatji lands from inland to the sea.

Southern Yamatji Regional Corporation will host a range of community activities from 4.30pm.

A Welcome to Country will take place from 6.30pm and the drone show at 7pm.
