Big Day Out in Harmony 

Join Alice Springs Town Coun­cil and Mul­ti­cul­tur­al Ser­vices of Cen­tral Aus­tralia to cel­e­brate our diverse community!

Each year, Mul­ti­cul­tur­al Com­mu­ni­ty Ser­vices of Cen­tral Aus­tralia invites all the local mul­ti­cul­tur­al groups and asso­ci­a­tions to par­tic­i­pate in the event and share some of their cul­ture with the wider com­mu­ni­ty. After months of rehearsals, it comes togeth­er on a day filled with colours, sounds, fra­grances and tastes from across the world.

In 2022, Ajak Kwai head­lined the event. Ajak Kwai is a name well known to the air­waves, stage, and broad­er Aus­tralian music com­mu­ni­ty for her pow­er­ful per­for­mances and strong mes­sages that call for inclu­sion and cel­e­bra­tion of the diver­si­ty found through­out Aus­tralian soci­ety. Per­form­ing in Eng­lish, Ara­bic, and her native lan­guage, Din­ka, Ajak Kwai’s music draws upon South Sudanese funk and blues influ­ences and brings togeth­er ele­ments of tra­di­tion­al music along­side more con­tem­po­rary gestures.
