The Parrtjima Festival Reference Group (PFRG) met for the first time on 10 April 2017 and was established to provide an opportunity for respected Arrernte people to provide advice and guidance to Parrtjima organisers on Aboriginal matters that relate to the artistic program and its cultural appropriateness. Parrtjima organisers have been told that the people coming to this reference group have traditional rights and responsibilities for this area.

Festival organisers understand that community consultation will be an ongoing process as the festival continues to grow and develop every year.
