Big Sing by the Sea

10-12 November 2023

Priority bookings will open first for the local community and later for the wider public if places are available.  Contact Jodie Lee to join the “Expression of Interest” list to be notified when bookings are open to all.

Worimi Elders, Forster Neighbourhood Centre and Big Sing Inc, present 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!

Workshops will be on offer during the weekend led by Worimi locals. Program coming soon!

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.
