We are excited to announce the launch of a new event – Get it on! – inviting clothing designers/makers to create wearable items out of our hand-printed fabrics. We have 40+ different fabric designs created by our artist members. Our team prints these designs on silk, linen, linen/cotton and cotton on our 8 metre table. We are looking for inspiring ways of using our fabrics in womenswear, menswear and children’s clothing. Can also include bags and wearable items (hats, jewellery). We supply the fabric and when participants have finished creating their piece they are rewarded with a gift voucher and included in an exhibition in Darwin in August 2017 also online. Prizes will be awarded in categories such as ‘most fabulous’, ‘most surprising’, ‘most strategic use of fabric’ and more. We have already had EOIs from potential participants from around the world. See our ever expanding Facebook album about the event here. For more information and details about how to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) send an email to director@injalak.com

Hello 2017

We’ve only been open a week since the big 6 week wet season closure and it’s been craaaaaazy. There has been non-stop rain so the roads and East Alligator River are in flood. Nobody can drive in or out – but that’s normal for this time of year. What’s not normal is to find that we’ve been featured on INSIDER Art, whose team kindly used video from our Instagram and Facebook accounts to create a lovely little feature video. Currently it’s had 2.1M views. See it HERE. Seriously people, this is mad!! Here we are in a remote Aboriginal community in north Australia and yet people around the world are seeing and appreciating our fabric printing team working their magic. As a consequence we’ve getting fantastic feedback and lots of visits to our Etsy Shop – so we’ve made sure it’s full of great things. Please consider supporting us because at this time of the year we have ZERO walk-in customers so cash flow plummets. Our artists (members) are still making lots of beautiful paintings, weavings, carvings and artefacts as well as printing so the Association supports them year round.
Looking forward to a fantastic year and stay tuned for happenings and events. We’ve got a few in the works ….
