Gapuwiyak Culture and Arts
Gapuwiyak Culture and Arts is a remote Art Centre in east Arnhemland. We are owned by our Yolŋu members, have a Yolŋu Board, and employ a Manager and Arts Workers. We support over one hundred artists from Gapuwiyak and surrounding homelands.
Gapuwiyak is a small, Yolŋu town in the middle of Miyarrka, a region around Arnhem Bay. There are eighteen clans in this region each with their own interconnected clan estates, songs, patterns and designs.
The Art Centre assists artists to collect and prepare materials, make high-quality art, explore ideas, develop knowledge and skills, exhibit, market and sell their work.
We run tourism and cultural programs. Our Culture and Art Centre is a great place to meet, relax, enjoy a coffee and learn about Yolŋu culture and art.
