Culture

Parrtjima – A Festival in Light is a celebration of Central Australia’s rich Aboriginal culture. It’s a breathtaking showcase of contemporary and traditional Indigenous art, culture and stories using light and sound on a scale never seen before.

To respectfully bring Parrtjima to life, an extensive consultation process was followed with a number of local Aboriginal groups who we wish to acknowledge and sincerely thank:

  • Arrernte Elders and Leaders, Custodians and Traditional Owners of Mparntwe
  • Institute for Aboriginal Development Incorporated (IAD) – Men’s Elders Group
  • Lhere Artepe Aboriginal Corporation
  • Aboriginal Areas Protection Authority

We acknowledge the Central Arrernte people as the traditional owners of this land and the custodians of Mparntwe (Alice Springs).
