Alice Springs


Friday, April 12, 2024 (all day)




We can’t wait for the desert to come alive under the Red

Centre’s starry skies at Parrtjima, the only authentic Aboriginal

light festival of its kind. An all-ages art and cultural event,

this is where the ancient and modern converge in a beautiful

celebration of earth’s oldest continuous living culture.

Parrtjima – A Festival in Light is where timeless Indigenous

stories are told in creative new ways, using cutting-edge

technology. It’s where local artists meet with some of Australia’s

most well-known Indigenous identities on Arrernte Country in

Alice Springs (Mparntwe).

The theme for 2024 is ‘Interconnectedness’, highlighting the

importance of sharing and working together, and the connection

First Nations people have with each other, the land, our

waterways and sky country.
