Parrtjima – A Festival in Light

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

5 Apr 2019 to 14 Apr 2019

Step into a spectacular world of light and sound where contemporary and traditional Indigenous stories and artwork are brought to life under the night sky on an unprecedented scale.

Illuminating the epic 300-million-year-old MacDonnell Ranges and spilling into Alice Springs Desert Park, Parrtjima will be a breathtaking outdoor gallery experience presenting local artwork, culture and stories, with interactive installations the whole family can enjoy.

The sheer scale of the lighting on the MacDonnell Ranges makes Parrtjima Australia’s longest-ever light show installation.

With ten nights to explore this free festival, make sure you don’t miss out!
