Inspired by Eid’s spirit in our homelands, domed canopies will be installed around Bunjil Place. These canopies are decorated in art inspired by the diverse cultural backgrounds and stories of families across Victoria. Under each canopy will be an art activity based around the Islamic theme of the event.

Hakaya is designed to function as a festive reactivation of our community, literally and metaphorically bringing people together under one ‘roof’.  The word Hakaya translates as ‘stories’ which are a key part of the community call to the gathering, acting as a summons to bring a community together in solidarity and support.

The performance is designed to be flexible, accessible and welcomes the audience to explore the space.

Children are invited to discover Eid characters and symbols hidden around the library, from the mosque to the prayer mat and other important elements including moon formation, how fasting is broken and popular culinary dishes. Young people will delight in this educational & fun activity designed to share fascinating facts about Eid in the award-winning creative hub.

Please note:

Special time for mother day, women only performance in the studio from 2:30-4:00 pm.

The rest of the activities in the foyer and library are going ahead until 4:00 pm.

The foyer and studio have no music at all. We also have musical breaks to allow people who want to enjoy the beautiful installations and take photos inside the studio.

The day is full of free activities, calligraphy, Henna, treasure hunt, art activities, open mic and Bukjeh songs for homeland and Islamic Nasheed, yummy food and many family surprises.

You do not want to miss out. We can not wait to see you 🙌🏽

With the support of BUNJIL place and ASRC teams
