Gig Rig

Gig Rig

With the incredible donation of a Mercedes Sprinter from the CMV Foundation, Carclew’s ‘Gig Rig’ is an all-terrain mobile sound and media studio. It can host sound recording, song writing, screen and podcasting activity as well as technical support for live music and dance performance.

Utilising youth music genres, contemporary dance, film and design, Carclew is supporting the development of BLKMPIRE; a First Nations creative industries initiative.

During 2021, the technical capabilities of the Gig Rig and the versatile skills of BLKMPIRE artists will be creatively engaging with young mob, off road and on Country.

The Gig Rig will roll into Port Augusta for a week-long creative intensive at Carlton School during May for Flashy Mob as part of the official launch event of Umeewarra Downtown within the 2021 Adelaide Guitar Festival On the Road program. Read more here...
