Djilpin Arts

Djilpin Arts is a community-owned, not-for-profit organisation based in the remote Indigenous community of Beswick/Wugularr, Northern Territory. Established in 2002, by the late actor and musician Balang T.E. Lewis, Djilpin Arts works to maintain, develop and promote local art and culture.

Working on country with kin and culture, across generations, our activities are rich in spirit, bringing healing to the community and linking traditional knowledge with modern enterprise.

Djilpin Arts is a place where visitors can engage with local people and artists, learn about traditional life and culture, browse and buy artworks, stay in our award-winning accommodation or experience seasonal cultural events, tours and immersions.

Ghunmarn Culture Centre is the heart of the Djilpin Arts, located in our cultural precinct in the centre of Beswick community.

Visit the treasured Blanasi Collection, a permanent showcase of culturally significant art works in the West Arnhem painting style and curated by late Elder and dijeridu master, David Blanasi. There is no admission fee to the Museum and you can take an interactive IPad tour to learn about the artists and their work. Local guides are available to take you through this stunning community-owned Collection.

Ghunmarn also features a retail gallery, where you can browse and purchase local art including traditional pandanus weaving, fine prints, hand cut dijeridus, carvings jewellery and our contemporary textiles range.

Choosing to buy authentic works direct from community enterprises like Djilpin Arts is a great way to support remote Indigenous artists and their families.

Open 9am to 4pm weekdays or by appointment.
