Join the Culture Club
BROWN’S MART’S LIVE ON FRIDAYS are an institution in Darwin. Now, the format is extending to Thursday nights with a brand new concept – cue, Club Culture.
Brown’s Mart Theatre’s head honcho Sean Pardy says it’s all about making sure the diverse Darwin community feels welcome in the space.
“Brown’s Mart is a venue for the entire Darwin Community,” he says.
“We wanted to make the precinct accessible for diverse community groups and do everything in our power to make it possible for them to call Brown’s Mart their own.”
Cultural groups will take over the courtyard and showcase music, dance and activities every Thursday night during June and July.
“The initial concept was to create an opportunity for the culturally diverse communities of Darwin to utilise the precinct,” Pardy says.
“We know that there is an array of talent in this city and we wanted to see some of that at Brown’s Mart. We partnered with Darwin Community Arts, who have rich and long term relationships with these communities, to help us deliver Club Culture and help us to showcase the true diversity of the Darwin community.”
The fun kicks off on June 6 with celebrated local band, Darwin World Mix, featuring an array of multicultural instruments and performers. This month, punters can also enjoy evenings celebrating Sephardic culture, a Bollywood inspired dance sesh and traditional Thai performances.
