The performing arts has been a successful vehicle for Girls from Oz (g-oz) to break the cycle of poverty in remote indigenous communities. In a celebration of their tenth year working with the community of Halls Creek, Girls from Oz will collaborate with the renowned Australian Girls Choir
(AGC chosen by Qantas to represent Australia in the unforgettable I Still Call Australia Home campaigns) in a week of singing, dance, and special events across the Kimberley.
Girls from Oz has transformed the lives of more than 600 girls through education, cultural initiatives and performance opportunities in major capital cities. The Australian Girls Choir has supported g-oz as their official charity partner since 2015.
The week will culminate in an exciting performance at the Ord Valley Muster’s Kimberley Moon Experience in Kununurra on Saturday May 25, involving 20 Halls Creek District High School Students (HCDHS) and 10 AGC choristers. Headliners for this year’s event include Australian international pop sensation, Amy Shark and homegrown singer-songwriter, Pete Murray.
