The Mongols have a unique, ongoing and lively cultural heritage. This has been recognised by UNESCO in terms of the large number of recognised aspects of intangible cultural heritage, such as Mongolian epics, long song, throat singing and even such aspects as camel coaxing and falconry.
The ANU Mongolia Institute is holding a cultural heritage event to celebrate the strength and diversity of Mongolian culture, as part of the anniversary of 50 years of diplomacy between Mongolia and Australia in 2022. The event is also part of a multicultural festival hosted by the ANU College of Asia and the Pacific - 2022 IMMERSIA.
A Mongolian yurt (ger) has been set up under the gum trees outside the Coombs Building at the ANU. Mongolians attending are welcome to dress in traditional attire (deel), while there will be Mongolian performance. Inside the ger, visitors will have the opportunity to learn about Mongolian games, crafts and classic calligraphy.
All are welcome, including families.
Venue: At the Mongolian Ger, Outside of Coombs Building, ANU, Fellows Road, ACTON 2600, ACT
