Big Sing by the Sea 2022
24-25 September 2022
Limited capacity. Bookings now open.
Worimi Elders, Forster Neighbourhood Centre and Big Sing Inc, invite you to share the fourth Big Sing by the Sea – Baraya Djukal Garuwaga, a musical Worimi cultural experience where Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people sing and learn together.
For early arrivals, on Friday afternoon, by popular demand, there will be a spectacular Worimi Cultural Cruise (bookings required).
Singing begins on Saturday, guided by Rachel Hore, OAM, founder of Big Sing in the Desert, and Sandra Kwa, Conductor of Wingsong and Baraya Wakulda choirs. We will sing familiar songs, learn new ones, including some in Worimi language, Gathang. All this while we form a new singing community!
During the 2-hour lunch break on Saturday two workshops are on offer – a weaving workshop and an art workshop, both led by Worimi locals (nominate which you would prefer when booking your ticket). Dinner on Saturday will be hosted by Great Lakes Museum (bookings required).
Sunday is all about polishing our singing so that we can demonstrate our collective awesomeness to friends and family at an afternoon concert, 2:30pm-3:30pm. Then over a cup of tea take the opportunity to view (and/or buy) artworks by local artists.
