A MESSAGE FROM Lindy
Four Winds Festival 2022 Creative Director
and welcome back!
Having made it through another punishing year, it will be a salve for the soul to find ourselves together again in this special landscape on Yuin Country among the spotted gums, with the ocean shimmering close by, surrounded by friends and birdsong. Take your time. Pause, regroup, seek nourishment and solace in community, nature, artists, ideas and – of course – live music.
In these complex times the theme of Common Ground invites us to celebrate through the sharing of art and music, those things that connect us, not separate us, as humans. It invites us to consider what brings each of us to the festival and to this beautiful region, itself a powerful cultural common ground, a place where for millennia Yuin Culture, music, dance and storytelling has been practiced.
Excellence in live music will always be the beating heart of Four Winds, and this year we welcome some of Australia’s finest musicians spanning baroque to contemporary music. But there are also new experiences with music at their heart: adventures in film, video, opera, meditation, poetry, dance and free events to show off our magnificent performance site, the Four Winds Sound Shell. As always, we celebrate the creative excellence of local artists with a focus on Yuin culture and language.
May your festival be a rich and restorative weekend of reflection, adventure and art inspired by the common ground we share and walk on.
