Sneak Peek of Parrtjima 2021

Back to News

Excitement is building for Parrtjima 2021, and an online preview on 8 February will provide a tantalising insight from Parrtjima Curator Rhoda Roberts about what you can expect from this year’s incredible Festival in Light!

Each year Parrtjima showcases the world’s oldest living culture through the newest technologies, transforming the ancient outback landscape of Alice Springs Desert Park into a living, breathing canvas. This includes the lighting of two kilometres of the majestic MacDonnell Ranges, and a selection of larger-than-life light installations that share ancient stories and shine like beacons beneath the star-studded sky.

The theme for this year’s event is Future Kultcha, which focuses on intergenerational wisdom told through light, interactive workshops, art, music, films, performance and the spoken word.

The online preview will provide a tantalising look at the beauty of this year’s installations, and introduce you to some of the artists and experts involved in bringing them to life. To see for yourself, simply like and follow the Parrtjima Facebook page.

Stay tuned over coming weeks as more details of the event program are revealed…
