• June – A Very Busy Month

    June 10, 2018
    We're galloping into the dry season with a bunch of projects getting very close to realisation this month. The crowdfunding campaign for our Injalak Hill Rock Art Book finishes on 18.6. As of today we are nearly there with nearly 90% raised ... but we still need a bit of extra support to get it over the line. Get in quick to our Pozible page to pledge and choose some great rewards including the first edition of this lovely 42 page, full-color book packed with excellent information.  We LOVE our supporters. Meanwhile Provenance Arts at 55 Stuart Highway Darwin is starting to look very flash. The exterior paintwork is finished, the signage is up and the windows on Geranium Street have had a beautiful decal treatment and now feature fabric designs from Tiwi Design, Merrepen Arts and Injalak Arts. Everyone agrees the palette looks gorgeous. Fingers crossed we'll start trading before the end of June and will be having a flash official opening in July. We are thrilled that Chief Minister Michael Gunner has said he'd be delighted to open it if we can find a time in his diary. We'll do a feature post on Provenance Arts soon - it's a big concept that combines social enterprise, education, tourism and more. You can follow Provenance Arts on Instagram and facebook. To finish off the month we'll be opening Get It On! 2018 at Aboriginal Bush Traders on the Esplanade in Darwin on 30th June. The inaugural event last year was a HUGE success and this year we've got even more beautiful clothes made by creatives from all over Australia and a few internationals as well. We are so pleased that The Hon Clare Martin has agreed to be MC for the night. She has been a big supporter of our fabric printing activities over the years.  It's a free ticketed event - places are limited so make sure you get yours from the events page. Also follow the hashtag #getiton2018 to see it unfolding. The exhibition will be on display until end of August.

    Injalak Hill Rock Art Book – new crowdfunding campaign

    May 19, 2018
    We are the Aboriginal djungkay (custodians) of Injalak Hill - a very special place in Arnhem Land, Northern Territory, with multiple rock shelters containing hundreds of priceless paintings made by our ancestors. We take small-group guided tours to Injalak Hill every dry season. Last week we launched a Pozible crowdfunding campaign to print a 42 page fully illustrated, color book about the rock art and history of Injalak Hill. The book is to share with everyone - visitors who will take tours of our Hill and those who have visited in the past and anyone else interested in Australia's Indigenous cultural legacy. With quality information and superb photos it will valued by anyone with an interest in Aboriginal art and culture and the rock art of the Top End of Australia. Three years in the making we are finally ready to print. The campaign is going really well, we are nearly 2/3 funded!! Get on board for your copy of the first edition!! For more information about our Rock Art Tours go here.

    The River is Down

    May 3, 2018
    We're officially open for tourist season 2018! The river came down last week and we've already had visits from independent travellers as well as our partners Kakadu Cultural Tours and Top End Day Tours. Both offer day tours out of Jabiru. Venture North has also brought guests. If you'd like to drive here it's not always easy to understand the tides but visit this website and give us a call and we can guide you through when it's easiest to cross the East Alligator River. Don't forget you can book your Injalak Hill Rock Art Tour with us or with a partner operator. Injalak Arts at Mindil Beach Markets has kicked off again - if you're in Darwin go and visit Brooke. We send in fresh stock every week. What else is happening? The Whacky Show will be at Don Whyte's until 19th May. This weekend we are launching a Pozible crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to publish a 42 page booklet about Injalak Hill. You'll be able to see our very own ad for it. Tomorrow Tourism NT is coming to make a film about our Rock Art Hill Tours featuring Christina Djorlom and on Sunday a BBC crew arrives to film for a major documentary. Our dear participants in Get it on 2018 are busy making beautiful things - follow #getiton2018 to see the clothing in progress. We will have entries from the US, Cambodia and a recently arrived Ukrainian plus many Australians. This weekend 4-6 May, we'll be at Finders Keepers Markets at Barangaroo in Sydney. We have projects, collaborations, events and more coming up. We'll keep you posted.
