Introducing Tim Selwyn
Tim honours the ancient lore of his people and the spirits of his ancestors through art and teaching.
His ancestral line comes from the Wongaibon people (Central West NSW), his Mother was born in Dubbo on Wiradguir country and Tim was born in Gilgandra, on Wailwan country.
Few know the land upon which they grow like Tim and his people. Along with a network of experts in cultural dancing, singing, bush medicine and tucker, Girri Girra is committed to sharing this knowledge through firsthand experience, guiding people through this ancient country, its history and customs.
Tim and his network of experts can also bring artefacts, traditions, dance, song and stories to schools, workplaces and public events.
His Indigenous tools and instruments – shields, boomerangs and clapsticks – are handmade from Australian hardwood trees. An experience with Girri Girra provides an unique insight into the world’s oldest living culture.
