• Hello 2018!

    February 4, 2018
    Well, it's nice to be back and open again. We've had a bit of a bumpy start with big monsoonal rainfalls across the Top End of Australia. The Arnhem Hwy that travels east from Darwin to Jabiru in Kakadu National Park (around 300 km) has been impassable for a week - it's deeply underwater in a number of places. We always have to fly in from Jabiru at this time of the year - but returning staff had to drive via Pine Creek (an extra 200 km) or charter from Darwin so it meant the art centre didn't open until Wednesday 1st February. Gabriel Maralngurra, Co-manager, has done a great job of keeping the art centre secure during the long closure and there's no rain damage either. Lots of housekeeping things to keep us busy. This week is STOCKTAKE!! We'll be closed to onsite customers from Tuesday until Friday. Meanwhile our pre-stocktake SALE is going well with - 20% off everything in out Etsy store. Just use the code STOCKTAKE2018 at the checkout. It finishes Tuesday 6th February but we will continue the SALE for customers coming to us via our website: just use the code INJALAKWEB. It's interesting to see where our Etsy traffic is coming from. New paintings will be uploaded in our own web shop this week too. We have LOTS of beautiful paintings and weavings made over the wet season and we'll continue FREE SHIPPING from our online shop until the dry season. Get It On! 2018 is going very nicely with lots of EOIs received from talented people. Entries close soon (end of this week) so contact us if you'd like some more information: director@injalak.com. See our event page here on Facebook and follow the event here #getiton2018

    Get It On! 2018

    January 17, 2018
    We just hit the launch button on Get It On! 2018 - a participatory event that celebrates and showcases our hand-printed Aboriginal designed fabric. Would-be participants have been invited to submit EOIs and from that we'll choose 40 to give fabric to. Once completed the creations are sent back and put on exhibition from June - August at Aboriginal Bush Traders in Darwin. Every participant receives a credit voucher for participating PLUS the chance to win a prize in more than 10 categories. You can visit our Get It On! 2018 event page to learn more and keep updated. The inaugural event #getiton2017 was an outstanding success and exceeded our expectations by a mile. More than 40 participants from around Australia plus Italy, India, Timor Leste and the USA created more than 200 items. The awards night was a blast and everyone attending (more than 150 people) was encouraged to wear clothing made from any hand-printed Aboriginal designed fabric! Most of them did!! You can see our facebook album of the 2017 event here. To follow the event and the activities of the creators #getiton2018 Another thing - we got a lovely little boost from our facebook mates Northern Territory - Australia's Outback when they shared a video of our ladies printing on fabric.  So far it's had 168K views and climbing. Enjoy. PS: Injalak Arts re-opens on 29.1.18

    Sorry folks, we’re closed until end of January

    After a monster year we're all taking a well earned rest. Thanks to everyone who visited us in person, purchased online, shared and commented on our social media, reviewed us on Trip Advisor and WikiCamps or called or sent us emails. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive - so much love!! We look forward to doing it all again AND MORE in 2018. A big thanks to all our partners and special shout-outs to: Kakadu Cultural Tours, Venture NorthTop End Day Tours, Nomad Art, and Aboriginal Bush Traders. NB: The art centre administration is now 100% closed. Artworks in both our online store and Etsy can still be browsed, however, if purchased they cannot be dispatched until February 1. Sorry, but it's unavoidable. Thanks for your patience.
