Bunjil Place and Bukjeh Present Hakaya of Eid 2024

Bukjeh specialise in creating events that celebrate the cultural heritage and traditions of communities. Hakaya of Eid is a vibrant and inclusive space where individuals can come together to share their stories, experiences, and joys during the festive occasion of Eid.

Hakaya of Eid at Bunjil is a unique event that honours the diverse narratives and traditions associated with Eid across different cultures. The event is centred around interactive sessions where individuals are invited to share personal anecdotes, memories, and reflections related to Eid. These storytelling sessions foster understanding and appreciation of the cultural richness and diversity within the community.

At the heart of our event design is the belief that by providing a platform for sharing stories and experiences, we foster empathy, understanding, and unity within the community.  

Join us for cultural performances, exhibitions, and workshops that showcase the arts, music, crafts, and cuisines associated with Eid celebrations.

Bukjeh is an award-winning project which turned into an organisation delivering cultural experiences, community engagements and intercultural exchanges in schools, theatres, and conferences for almost a decade across Victoria.

Bukjeh's purpose is to create connection and community. Our basic human need to meet and support one another has never been more urgent, or more difficult to fulfil, as we emerge from the pandemic.
