Enjoy a curated program of films, music and tours every Sunday in January.
Kick off the new year with the first Tarnanthi Sunday Sessions for the season. Take a guided tour of the exhibition and learn more about the exhibiting artists through a series of video portraits, then soak up the sounds of a diverse array of First Nations musicians. Join us for a day of cultural immersion for all ages, with Start at the Gallery in the morning rolling into the chilled vibes of Sunday Sessions in the afternoon.

Join our Gallery Guides for a tour of the Tarnanthi exhibition. Learn about the works on display, the artists who created them and the cultures they reflect.
Soak up the sweet acoustic sounds of Western Arrernte singer-songwriter Casii Williams. Coming from a revered musical family, Casii started performing at 10 years old and is now carving her own path with a unique mix of electronic influences and rootsy indie vibes.
Groove to the smooth guitar-driven tunes of Arabana, Yawuru and Marridjabin singer-songwriter Nathan May.
Mums on Tour
Be enchanted by the warm and wonderful sounds of three soulful singer-songwriters from up north. Patsy Coleman is a powerhouse performer from the top end, Jessie K is a mean guitar player who calls Alice home, and Casii Williams is a Western Arrernte woman and third-generation musician making her own mark on the scene. Bringing their voices together and calling on their life experiences, their music combines country, blues, reggae and soul in the perfect mix to leave you wanting more.
Sunday Sessions is presented by Tarnanthi, in partnership with BHP and with the support of the Government of South Australia.
