What is a Wellah Weekend?
The EJ Whitten Foundation partnered with Spark Health to create this brand new event for Aboriginal Men, and we had the most incredible Wellah Weekend together!
 

A Wellah Weekend is the most fun you will ever have shaking up your lifestyle!

Wellah Weekend coordinates some of the best facilitators in Aboriginal Health and Well-being from around the state to create an action packed agenda to fuel the mind, body and spirit. 

The March 2020 Wellah Weekend features Lowell Hunter (Wayapa Wurruker), Daniel Bolger, Luke Daley and Steve Parker (and heaps more!) specialist workshops throughout the camp.

 

Working for Merch!

Clothing the Gap X Steve Ulula Parker

Every Wellah Fella that joins us on the 2020 Wellah Weekend will be receiving one of these limited edition Clothing The Gap Tee's featuring artwork by Steve Parker.

Steve is a proud Indigenous man with ties to the Yorta Yorta, Erub and BoonWurrung. Steve shares the meaning of his work, titled 'Wellah Fellas':

"This artwork reflects Indigenous men’s journey across Victoria and around Nairm (Port Phillip Bay) to the Wellah Fella’s Djambana (gathering). The Guyeem (Kangaroo) prints connect and track the men’s journey back to their own Country, carrying with them the health and well-being messages from the Wellah Weekend."

Thanks for creating a beautiful piece for our Wellah Fella's Steve! We can't wait to see heaps of legends reppin' them.

 

Wellah Weekend participants experience:

- Opportunities to learn more about health and Aboriginal Culture.
