Drum atweme

 

Overview

Drum atweme is a drumming group made up of young people from town camps in Alice Springs, Northern Territory. The group was established in 2004 and has around 30 core performers, with another 100 students participating in drumming lessons each week.

The Drum atweme group engages young people from town camps in Alice Springs, who often experience boredom, depression, low self confidence and exposure to violence and substance use. The project enables young people to be part of a positive and publicly popular activity.
