Dingo Dogs – Silver Birch

Wanda Gibson

Screen Print on Linen Fabric

200cm x 135cm


When I was younger, we owned a pet dingo. Our dingo was named ‘Dingo’. We really loved him, especially the children. He was a beautiful and very clever animal. One day my husband and I decided to visit Laura, and we took the young children and Dingo along for the ride. When we arrived in Laura, we noticed two Whitefellas in a truck. We were catching up with friends and family; the kids were playing, when we suddenly noticed that Dingo had disappeared. The kids searched for him high and low. They eventually found him. He was tied up on the back of the Whitefella’s truck! The kids quietly and quickly untied Dingo and rescued him. Dingo was very happy to be back with the family




Hopevale Arts and Cultural Centre

Based in remote Cape York, Queensland , the Hopevale Arts and Cultural Centre was opened in 2009 as an open and accessible space for all Hopevale community members to pursue their interest in art, and to maintain the stories and traditions of the local Guugu-Ymithirr culture.

The Centre is often used for community events, meetings and private functions. It is open to the public Monday-Thursday, and throughout peak tourism seasons we run a range of workshops and public talks from the garden of the centre.  We sell a range of locally made arts and crafts through the attached Nganthanun Bmawi-Bayan Gallery.

The Hopevale Arts and Cultural Centre is a not-for-profit Indigenous corporation managed by a small team of administrative staff and a Board of Directors. Board members are elected by the Hopevale community at the annual general meeting every November. The Board is comprised of six local leaders who work with the Manager to achieve strategic goals and ensure the Centre meets its goals to promote and preserve the traditional Guugu-Ymithirr culture.
