Sharing culture and song

After a three-year break, Big Sing in the Desert is BACK in 2023 and we REALLY need your help to make it happen!

A unique four-day singing camp in the heart of Australia, Big Sing in the Desert is much loved by all who attend, providing an opportunity for musical and cultural sharing through song, dance, food, art, conversation and community.

In past years, people from across Australia have become sponsors to support First Nations singers to attend.

Your contribution of $50/$100/$200 (or an amount of your choice) goes directly toward the costs of transport, accommodation and workshop expenses for singers from the Central Desert communities of Kaltukatjara (Docker River), Mutitjulu, Titjikala, Areyonga (Utju), Ntaria (Hermannsburg) and Mparntwe (Alice Springs).

Big Sing Incorporated‘s goal is to raise $40,000 before 20 April 2023.  Can you help us to get our singers there?

What our sponsored singers have to say …

“When we get together for the music, the singing, it’s like healing.
That’s what I see.” – Gwen Inkamala, Ntaria NT,  Big Sing in the Desert 2018.

The Song Keepers

Many singers from the Central Australian Aboriginal Women’s Choir are regular participants at Big Sing in the Desert. This is made possible by our Sponsor a First Nations Singer programme.  Members of the CAAWC have been invaluable teachers and leaders at every Big Sing in the Desert since it began in 2010. I am honoured to know them and work with them.

View the trailer for the beautiful documentary film The Song Keepers which  tells the story of the Central Australian Aboriginal Women’s Choir’s tour to Germany with Morris Stuart in 2015.
