Parrtjima light festival
This April, the Northern Territory celebrates the Parrtjima Festival, the only authentic Aboriginal light festival of its kind. Over ten magical nights, the festival illuminates Alice Springs with light installations from Aboriginal artists set against the ancient canvas of the MacDonnell Ranges.
Parrtjima is held on Mparntwe (Alice Springs), which is part of the Arrernte people. As well as Arrernte art, the festival features amazing artwork from across the Central Desert region and associated other parts of the Northern Territory.
