  • A beautiful building with lots of local artists showing their paintings. The DVDs is amazing , it explains their spirituality in a simple, interesting way. A must see 
  • An absolute pleasure - the work is nothing short of stunning - of many artists - I had the pleasure of meeting one, and also talked with an employee- I am distressed to hear that government funding is being eroded each year- leaving barely one paid person to run what is a very large business - this is madness - this arts centre provides the canvas on which many lives depend for continuing cultural expression - having been displaced from their country and traditional art sites - the value of Mowanjum Art Centre is integral to the empowerment, health and wellbeing of these wonderful first peoples. Thank you for your warm welcome ! Sally (Be sure to watch the 20minute video about Mowanjum)
