Symposium on Indigenous music and dance 


Charles Darwin University is set to host the 2007 Symposium on Indigenous Music and Dance as a part of the 2007 Darwin Festival.

This year’s Symposium is the sixth in a series that began at the 2002 Garma Festival.

The Symposium will present recent work on Indigenous music and dance, including that undertaken as part of the National Recording Project for Indigenous Performance in Australia.

The Symposium is a major initiative that seeks to record, document and archive the major traditions of Australian Aboriginal music. Various Indigenous performers and thinkers will participate as a part of the festivities.

The free symposium will be held on 18 August from 9am - 12.30pm and 2pm - 5pm at CDU’s Casuarina Campus, room 1, building 22.
