Four young Aboriginal women from regional Australia, who like singing country music, suddenly get the chance to change their tune, and their lives. Wearing sequins, armed only with microphones they find themselves trying to spread joy in the hell that is the Vietnam War.
Presented in partnership with Desart, Desert Mob is an event of national significance, representing the most comprehensive survey of contemporary Aboriginal art by artists from across the desert regions and communities of Central Australia. After record-breaking audience attendances and artwork sales in 2018, this 29-year–strong event remains as vital and vibrant as ever.
