We’ve now had the 2016 calendar New Year, then the Chinese New Year of the Monkey and most recently Valentine’s Day – and it feels good. We finally sorted out our internet (was down for three weeks) and we’re back online. The team is raring to go and full of energy with the calendar already filling up with coming events. Outstation trips commenced this week with some beautiful weavings and paintings coming in from Manmoyi, Mamadawerre and Kabulwarnamyo. Dave, Virgil, Roland and Gabriel did the trip. Have a look at the photos on our facebook page here – this album will be updated regularly. The Construction crew are limbering up and getting things built and painted. We have just called for tenders for our NEW SCREENPRINT WORKSHOP AND CAFE – this one is so exciting. Fingers crossed the build will be finished by the end of dry season. We have exhibitions lined up for Australia and overseas (details coming soon), a diary full of dry season tour operator bookings, a special guest consultant coming in April 2016 to give us advice about the new kitchen/cafe and Mindil Beach Markets gearing up for a start in late April. Of course we have a heap of wonderful fresh stock, paintings, baskets, sculptures, jewellery, fabric, bags etc in the shop ready for the river to come down and visitors to start arriving. We also have publishing projects on the go, an oral history project underway, skills development workshops scheduled … it’s all happening.

About Injalak Arts & Crafts Association

Injalak is a non-profit, community enterprise. The Art Centre here in Gunbalanya was officially opened in late November 1989. Prior to 1989 its origins were in a small shed used for screen printing. The building that now houses the various functions of the Art Centre is long and flanked on either side by covered verandahs. The artists work on either side of the verandah, sitting on the ground and grinding their ochres.
