ABOUT THE ART CENTRE

MOWANJUM ARTS & CULTURE CENTRE
Gibb River Road, Derby Westerm Australia

The Mowanjum Aboriginal Art and Cultural Centre is a creative hub for the Worrorra, Ngarinyin and Wunumbal tribes, who make up the Mowanjum community outside Derby, Western Australia. These three language groups are united by their belief in the Wandjina as a sacred spiritual force and the creators of the land. They are the custodians of Wandjina law and iconography. The centre hosts exhibitions, workshops and community projects, as well as the annual Mowanjum Festival, one of Australia's longest running indigenous cultural festivals.

The Worrorra, Ngarinyin and Wunambal people were removed from their northern homelands in the early 1900s, first to Kunmunya Presbyterian Mission, then to Wotjulum, near Yampi Sound. They were eventually settled on Nykina country near Derby, far from their sacred Wandjina caves. In 1975, the community was shifted once to its present site, east of Derby off the Gibb River Road.

CULTURE
The iconic and instantly recognisable Wandjina can be seen in anthropological and artistic collections all over the world. It continues to attract attention from researchers, collectors and the general public. The Wandjina Spirits unite the three Mowanjum language groups, Worrorra, Ngarinyin and Wunumbal. In 2000, Worrorra cultural leader Donny Woolagoodja designed an enormous Namarali Wandjina for the spectacular Sydney Olympics opening ceremony, reinvigorating international interest in Wandjina iconography.
