It is an absolute pleasure to be able to attend the Nguyuru Waaringarrem Halls Creek Music Festival this year! Since its first Concert in 2010 the Festival has become a fixture of the Kimberley music scene and rapidly developed into one of the most important cultural and social events across the North of Western Australia.
Not only does the Festival create an opportunity for Kimberley musicians to perform in front of a home crowd, but the Festival is focussed on supporting the provision of meaningful social and economic opportunities for the people of Halls Creek. As everyone knows, when you create local opportunities for local people in regional WA you enhance community safety through reduced crime, violence and abuse.
|The Nguyuru Waaringarrem Halls Creek Music Festival is an initiative of PRK Radio and is supported by an active Festival Committee is responsible for planning and organising the event. The Committee draws on the skills, knowledge and commitment of a broad range of prominent individuals and organisations in Halls Creek. It boasts experience in local government, community development, youth work, provision of substance abuse services, health, education, employment, training, mentoring, business, Indigenous language and culture and cross cultural awareness.
More than 1500 people were at the first Nguyuru Waaringarrem Halls Creek Music Festival held on Saturday 28 August 2010, the biggest event ever held in town. It was a hugely successful event. A trouble free crowd sang, danced and laughed their way through many hours of traditional dance, music of all kinds, comedy, kids workshops, great food and a massive fireworks display the like of which has never been seen in Halls Creek.
