Yalinguth Mobile App Launch
Mobile App Online Preview
From Friday 23rd July
Public launch event postponed for now, but check out the app in person or online
Can you hear the land? Yalinguth (meaning “yesterday” in Woi Wurrung) is the name of a new app that uses sound-based augmented reality to connect the land of Fitzroy with stories told by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. It’s like entering a 3D sound world where you may be drawn to a song, stumble across a protest or walk alongside a storyteller or poet.
Yalinguth invites you to join an online preview of the app during the Gertrude St Projection Festival and to experience a different kind of projection, one for your ears.
Is Fitzroy within your 5km zone?
You need to be at Gertrude St, Fitzroy to use the app, so if you’re local and out getting some exercise, download the app and have a test run. You can download the app from the App Store here: https://apps.apple.com/au/app/yalinguth/id1566826056 & Google Play here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.Storyscape.Yalinguth
Is Fitzroy beyond your 5km zone?
We’ll be releasing sneak peeks of the app – beautiful stories, poems, songs – on Facebook and Instagram until we can reschedule the Yalinguth Launch Event.
Follow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/yalinguth and Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/yalinguth/ for a sneak peek from Friday 23rd July.

Yalinguth (“yesterday” in Woi Wurrung) is a mobile app/ audio augmented reality experience that connects people to place and history through geo-located soundscapes and stories told by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. In keeping with oral traditions, and to minimise screens, Yalinguth is expressed entirely through sound. The overall premise of Yalinguth is guided by the words of the Elders that “we need to go back, to go forwards”.
