First Lights is a place-responsive, dynamic arts and cultural story-telling experience which combines innovative new technologies with ancient and living stories of place.

Each First Lights is created by a new collective of artists, sound designers and musicians, who are guided by Traditional Owners from each place.

The inaugural First Lights in Fremantle (Walyalup), Moombaki was created by Ilona McGuire alongside Whadjuk Nyoongar Traditional Owners and with sound design by Envelope Audio.

Balarr Inyiny for Darwin is to be created by Jenna Lee alongside members of the Larrakia community, with sound design by Kuya James and compositions by Lena Kellie.
