Bilya Bidi Audio Tour
Commissioned by Fremantle Biennale, 2021
Artists: Mayma Awaida, Tony Sarre
The Fremantle Biennale program reveals and celebrates the cultural, social and historical uniqueness of the greater Walyalup (Fremantle) region.
Building on their invitation to audiences to rediscover the bilya (river) and histories of place, a self-guided audio tour and walk, Bilya Bidi, accompanies their program. Audiences can access this audio walk via their mobile devices and the QR codes located at specific sites.
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.
