Parrtjima – A Festival in Light delighted thousands of people in 2020 and welcomed them to Arrernte Country in the Red Centre.

Over 10 nights under desert skies, in an ancient landscape, from the heart of Australia we inspired visitors of all ages from far and wide with mesmerising animated artworks, spectacular light shows and larger-than-life illuminated sculptures.

We also shared stories, held in-depth discussions, cooked up a storm with chefs Mark Olive and Rayleen Brown and celebrated the talent of local musicians from heavy metal to acoustic.

This extraordinary Festival in Light, at Alice Springs Desert Park, connected us all when we needed it the most and Lifted Our Spirits long after we returned home.

We look forward to seeing you again next year when Parrtjima returns from 9-18 April, 2021, with a new theme.

Parrtjima 2021 – Future Kultcha will focus on intergenerational wisdom told through light, installations, art, music, dance, performance and the spoken word.

Make sure you join us and come and experience the magic that is Parrtjima, held in Alice Springs (Mparntwe), in 2021.
