Desert Mob Symposium 2024

The Desert Mob 2024 symposium is an unmissable opportunity for audiences to hear firsthand from Aboriginal artists about their work and projects, community and country.

A day of presentations by art centres and special guests, the symposium offers rich context to Desert Mob through presentations, interviews, film, and performance.

The Desert Mob symposium is presented by Desart as part of Desert Mob, one of the nation’s most anticipated Aboriginal art events. Desert Mob 2024 will take place at the Araluen Arts Centre in Mparntwe (Alice Springs) during September and October and comprises an exhibition, symposium, market, public programs, satellite events and activations.

Full Desert Mob 2024 Symposium program and ticket release to be announced.
