• 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!!

    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.

    Getting Whacky in Darwin

    April 18, 2018
    We're teetering on the edge of the early dry season - this time of year is called Bangkerreng. There are still plenty of showers around but the monsoon has passed, the floodplains are gradually drying and Cahill's Crossing is almost traversable. And it's time to go fishing!! It's only a matter of days or a couple of weeks and we'll be getting visitors again. Our first major event for the year is 'The Whacky Show' currently on exhibition (and we use the term loosely) at Don Whyte Framing in Coconut Grove, Darwin. Injalak Arts and Don Whyte have had a relationship spanning more than 25 years. Don was the in-house framer at Framed Gallery before striking out on his own. He's never looked back and is now one of the go-to framers in Australia. His expertise in framing our works on paper is unparalleled.  We've had a growing collection of quirky, whacky creations gradually assembling themselves in a box - and they deserve an audience. Don has a wall he allows artists and art centres to present artworks on. He takes no commission and is very generous with the space and takes the time to hang and present the works with care. The works are now all up on the wall and include unframed works on paper, carvings, small number of barks, a couple of weavings, mixed media and a singularly well-hung BewkBewk limited edition print (that we have multiple copies of for sale). There are more than 80 petite, highly affordable pieces of art on show. The works will be on display until 19th May. We still have plenty of stock in our online Etsy shop - but don't forget we close it sometime in May because onsite demand gets too much to keep stocking it. Look out for one more big sale before we close it.
