By Moorambilla Voices partnering with leading arts organisations, the development of the extraordinary talent in the region translates to an artistic outcome that is exceptional in itself, but has the added benefit of being life changing for those involved by providing a rich starting point for artistic, social and career growth.
Through the Moorambilla Arts Pathway (MAP) program, young and emerging artists are able to learn and create in an environment that showcases their capacity – further acting as role models for regional youth on the excitement that is “life is full of possibilities”.
- Tainga Savage: is our 2017 dance intern. Through High School Tai became part of the NSW Aboriginal Dance Company, performing for the Schools Spectacular from 2013- 2014. Tainga was one of six to perform for the Royals, William and Kate, as they arrived in Australia and has also performed at the Netball World Cup. This is Tainga’s second year working with the ensembles of Moorambilla Voices and Jacob Williams.
- Sara Tinning: Sara enjoys texture and light, making a lantern brings both to life. Sara’s favourite stage of the lantern making process is covering the cane work with muslin. Sara loves working with fabrics and sewed as a child, she studied patternmaking as a teen. Uninspired by the early 80’s rag-trade, Sara joined the costume department at the Australian Opera and set out on
a journey through the wardrobes of theatre, film, circus, dance, weddings and more to find herself working with LightnUp and Moorambilla Voices.
- Ethan Day: Ethan is originally from Coonamble and has a unique photographic eye. Ethan was involved in the 17 communities photography tour with Noni Carroll mentoring him for two weeks in the region.
- Burra Mac (Christopher McHughes): lives in Brewarrina. He is a keen photographer who is already established as a landscape photographer in the region – Burra Mac Photography.

- for young indigenous kids in his region. Burra has been involved with Moorambilla Voices since 2016.
