Gapuwiyak Culture and Arts

Gapuwiyak Culture and Arts is a remote Art Centre in east Arnhemland.

Owned by the Yolŋu members and have a Yolŋu Board, they employ a Manager and Arts Workers. Gapuwiyak Culture and Arts 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.

The Culture and Art Centre is a great place to meet, relax, enjoy a coffee and learn about Yolŋu culture and art.
