The richness of both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island cultures will be shared in this two-part, immersive performance which is tailored to the age groups of the audience through song, dance, stories, and language, all with high levels of participation.
The flags will be discussed and Majeda will present and demonstrate various instruments, artifacts, and costumes specific to each culture as well as the importance of ochre and the significance of the body paint designs in aboriginal culture. She will perform and teach dances for audience participation.

Taking you on a journey of Australia’s First Nation dreamtime through an interactive and vibrant experience, Majeda Beatty presents both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island cultures as well as sharing her perspective on being an indigenous millennial woman. She believes in the importance of cultural pride and carrying on past traditions as well as moving forward in a modern world.

Majeda is a Sydney-based singer, actress, and dancer who comes from a proud Wuthathi mother, her roots stemming from Far North Queensland, and an African American father. Growing up she was taught the importance of her culture by her mother through movement, song, and storytelling. At five years of age, Majeda started performing in schools with her family’s cultural dance group and over the years her talents have seen her perform over a wide variety of mediums. In recent times she has become well known for her starring role in the ABC3 Drama series ‘Ready For This’.
