There are border restrictions, yes, but if you’re in the Northern Territory, you’d be happy to know there is a lot to do over the next couple of weeks.
Darwin Festival is set to open in a week’s time – the first major capital city event in Australia to go ahead since Covid-19 lockdown.
With a program dubbed ‘DF20 Homegrown‘, this year sees a celebration of top-end talent with an array of exciting live and virtual events that span across theatre, music, comedy, cabaret and the visual arts.
Says Darwin Festival Artistic Director, Felix Preval, “Our Festival is officially around the corner, and we couldn’t be prouder of what it’s shaped up to be. We’re excited to light up the Darwin CBD with incredible local offerings in Festival Park and to give Territorians the dry season good times we’ve all needed. Restrictions won’t stop our interstate friends joining in some of this year’s program with a bunch of exciting virtual events to enjoy.”
National audiences can get their fix of art and culture with the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair, National Indigenous Music Awards, Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards (Telstra NATSIAA), and the inaugural National Indigenous Fashion Awards — all of which are heading online.
