Musical and cultural sharing, amidst the stunning landscape of the East MacDonnell Ranges

11 - 14 May 2017

8CCC Community Radio - Alice Springs Big Sing in the Desert is supported by 8CCC Community radio, Alice Springs

Denise Brady and Lily Tjiweri from Docker River attended Big Sing in the Desert choral camp last year. Denise drove the community bus over 700ks from Docker River to Alice Springs with 15 singers on board. It was her first Big Sing. Lily has been a participant six years running.

Our singing community raised the funds to get them there.

Sponsor an Indigenous Singer


Each year hundreds of people across Australia become sponsors to support Indigenous singers to attend the BIG SING in the Desert.

Donate $30 or more, which will directly fund the costs of transport and accommodation for our Indigenous singers, some of who will be travelling over 700 ks to attend the workshop. We are expecting singers from Areyonga, Alice Springs, Hermannsburg, Papunya, Titjikala, Mutijulu and Docker River communities, and the word is spreading!

Our aim is to raise $20,000 which will support the costs of up to 50 Indigenous singers to attend. We cannot hold this event without your help. Please help us to get people there.

As a sponsor you’ll receive a link to photos and footage of Big Sing 2017.
