CIAF announces new production for 10th Anniversary
The CIAF office is buzzing with excitement this week as we announce an exciting new project for 2019, Cultural Heights.
CIAF Choir Directors, Deline Briscoe, Philemon Mosby and Joey Tapau will work with the communities of Yarrabah, Wujal Wujal, Hopevale, Mossman, Poruma Island and Mer Island to develop their own choir groups resulting in a production at Cairns Performing Arts Centre as part of our 10th Anniversary celebrations. Cultural Heights will aim to revive traditional language, preserve local heritage and encourage intergenerational knowledge sharing and voice training in communities.
Cultural Heights is supported by Queensland Government’s Backing Indigenous Arts – Performing Arts (BIA-PA) program and the Australian Government through the Australia Council, it’s art funding and advisory body. Cultural Heights will be presented at Cairns Performing Arts Centre on Saturday 13 July. Tickets go on sale in early May.
