Aboriginal Cultural Showcase

EXPRESSION OF INTEREST – WALK UP PERFORMANCES

The Aboriginal Cultural Showcase is a weeklong annual event held during the Tamworth Country Music Festival, which will run for its Eight year in 2015.  The Showcase has been developed to expose and develop the talent of new emerging Aboriginal musicians and to create a variety of opportunities for Aboriginal musicians, performers and craftspeople to celebrate and promote their talents and culture throughout the Tamworth Country Music Festival program.

 

Walk-Up Sessions will be scheduled from 4pm to 7pm Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.  Musicians and performers of any level of talent, from young to old, brand new to seasoned performers are invited to come and have a go, show your stuff and get some experience on our stage.  Walk-Up performances are 15 minutes duration, or 3 songs each. 

 

Over the years the Showcase has seen performers as young as four years old to those with many years of performing under their belts, get up to enjoy the opportunity of performing on the Cultural Showcase stage with our band.  Walk-ups are an opportunity to perform and get a feel for the stage for the very first time, test new material or techniques on stage and gauge audience reaction, or just be able to put on your resume that you have performed on stage at the Tamworth Country Music Festival.  Whatever your motivation, the walk-ups welcome everyone, so don’t be shame!  Get up and show off the talent of our mob!

 

As an additional opportunity the stage will be available for busking between 11am and 4pm from Tuesday to Saturday.

EXPRESSION OF INTEREST - CULTURAL PERFORMANCES & WORKSHOPS

The Aboriginal Cultural Showcase is a weeklong annual event held during the Tamworth Country Music Festival, which will run for its eighth year in 2015.  The Showcase has been developed to expose and develop the talent of new emerging Aboriginal performers and to create a variety of opportunities for Aboriginal musicians, performers, cultural practitioners and craftspeople to celebrate and promote their talents and Aboriginal culture throughout the Tamworth Country Music Festival program.

For the 2015 Aboriginal Cultural Showcase we are seeking Expressions of Interest from people who are interested in Cultural Performance andRunning Cultural Workshops.

Cultural Performance - We are seeking Aboriginal arts and cultural practitioners, encompassing the areas of music, weaving, didgeridoo, painting, body paint, sand art, storytelling, bushtucker, bush medicine, Aboriginal language or similar, who are interested in contributing a performance to the overall program of Aboriginal Cultural Showcase.  The Showcase’s weeklong program includes a number of opportunities for performances both at our main venue and also in other venues throughout the Tamworth Country Music Festival footprint.

Cultural Workshops - We are seeking Aboriginal arts and cultural practitioners, encompassing the areas of music, weaving, didgeridoo, painting, body paint, sand art, storytelling, bushtucker, bush medicine, Aboriginal language or similar, who are interested in facilitating a workshop for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal visitors to the Aboriginal Cultural Showcase.  Cultural workshop facilitators should be able to demonstrate some expertise in the area of their topic and design a workshop that allows visitors to experience Aboriginal culture first hand, preferably through some interactive element.

Benefits of getting involved - The Tamworth Country Music Festival is a major Festival on the Australian calendar.  The Aboriginal Cultural Showcase is only one opportunity at the Festival, with busking, pub, shopping centre and private venue gigs and paid shows being other opportunities that you may wish to pursue in planning your trip to Tamworth.  For more information visit www.tcmf.com.au.
