WinterWild is held on Gadabanud Country. Sovereignty was never ceded. Respect to the elders, the holders of knowlegde and keepers of stories. Walk softly, this place and it’s people are important to us. Strength lies in diversity and all are welcome around the fire. We don’t care about what colour you are on the outside, we’re much more interested in what you have going on inside. We don’t care where you come from, we just like it that you’ve arrived here. The inidvidual expression of gender and sexuality is a beautiful thing. Keep doing that. We love you. WinterWild is a secular festival. Ethics and morals are personal and ambiguous. Hold on to your beliefs and respect the right of others to do the same. Human communities are ecosystems, dependant on complexity in order to thrive. Let’s thrive together. Welcome to WinterWild.
