Upai Purri Dancing at Sunset

Daminmin Arts and Culture Festival

A beautiful two-day arts and culture festival.

Join us for bush camping beside the Pudakul Billabong just east of Humpty Doo, in the Adelaide River wetlands, on Limilngan-Wulna country.

This festival is created in partnership with Pudakul and Darwin Community Arts (DCA), under the artistic and cultural direction of Lynette and Graham Kenyon. It is a celebration of art and culture in the rural area, highlighting First Nations culture alongside a range of contemporary artistic practices.

Entry by Donation- some workshops are FREE and some include a fee.

Come for the day or camp the whole weekend!

Friday 30th June from 10 am we will enjoy the opening ceremony with the Garramilla Dancers, followed by a host of arts activities and cultural workshops nestled amongst the bush.

In the evening we will enjoy a short film festival with NT Traveling Film Fest.

Saturday 1 July we will continue with workshops through the day followed by a sunset concert sharing great Northern Territory Musicians, featuring Shellie Morris and the wonderful singers from Borroloola.

The Daminmin Festival is supported by the Northern Territory Government through NT Major Events, Australia Council for the Arts, Inspire NT and the Office for the Arts through the Festivals Australia fund.
