Tuesday 4th July

Rate:

The festival will start with a "Welcome to Country" by an elder from the community of Ali Curung, and then the Hon. Gerry McCarthy MLA, the member for Barkly, will officially open the Ali Curung Traditional Dance Festival.

The festival aims to embrace cultural awareness, and to encourage intergenerational learning of Indigenous cultural knowledge through, music, song and dance.

It also allows non Indigenous visitors to experience bush tucker and bush medicine, and Indigenous culture first hand.

It is held during NAIDOC week celebrations, keeping culture strong and helping with closing the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.

Come along and see traditional aboriginal dances. Be amazed by the skills on display in the fire making demonstrations, using boomerang and spear throwing competitions with traditional woomera. Watch local artists at work creating magnificent pieces of aboriginal art and listen and learn from bush tucker and medicine talks.
Enjoy live bands and dance to the beats at the disco with a hip hop dance for the younger ones.

Drug & alcohol free event.
