Listen | Bilya Bidi

The Fremantle Biennale CROSSING 2021 program revealed and celebrated the cultural, social and historical uniqueness of the greater Walyalup (Fremantle) region. Building on our invitation to audiences to rediscover the bilya (river), a self-guided audio tour and walk, Bilya Bidi, accompanied our program.

Bilya Bidi explores the histories of the bilya (river), acknowledging ancient stories and disruptions and weaving together interviews, reflections and new works from Whadjuk Noongar Traditional Owners, historians and community members, as well as the Fremantle Biennale artists.
