Mirray (Primary Girls)
August & September
Primary girls have a unique spark and “glow” in their sound. Every year we celebrate their powerful “pink positivity” in word deed and song.
In August and September, participants who are identified during the Skills Development Workshops attend the residential camps in Baradine. At the camps, participants co-create new multi art form works, learning both basic and advanced performance skills. Professional musicians, performers, composers, choreographers and outstanding indigenous regional visual artists, provide training, leadership and mentorship during the season.

I had heard that Moorambilla was amazing, but I now know it to be an extraordinary organisation. The role that Moorambilla can play in the lives of our children in Western NSW is so very important and I can see that the impact can run very deep indeed. It is a rare opportunity for these children to stand up and be proud of where they live and who they are. The power of being involved in an organisation that brings joy, teaches commitment and dedication whilst promoting positivity to all involved cannot be underestimated.

My favourite part of Moorambilla was meeting new people and making lots of friends. I love singing the music in the shower !! It was so much fun being there with my big sister
I am a Wiradjuri Elder from Griffith who attended and was involved in two Moorambilla workshops and was a supervisor at the Moorambilla Voices performances in Dubbo. I know that the children and young people from Griffith who I travelled with said that it was one of the best experiences of their lives. It was also one of the best experiences of my life – I know that we will never forget it.
Moorambilla – It creates happiness and gives you happiness. To experience different cultural dances and songs and be taught by artists that are experts in what they do is awesome. Moorambilla makes me feel happy and capable and confident to sing and dance which I do not usually do!
