Wellama means ‘to come back’ in the Sydney language. This 10 minute audio visual artwork, by Alison Page and Nik Lachajczak, is a celebration of ritual, ceremony and story practised on Country since time immemorial.

The work is a contemporary re-imagining of Welcome to Country, a customary greeting that our First Peoples extend to visitors, who in turn agree to respect the traditional laws and culture of Country.

Wellama welcomes visitors to Gadigal Country and pays respect to the Traditional Custodians of this land.
