  • Learn about an ancient culture of the Kimberley. The free presentation is great. Oh and of course the art is amazing
  • Great presentation, and representation of community pride, and their willingness to share their stories. Thank you, especially to Amelia.👍
  • 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)
