The Texta Works of Bábbarra Women's Centre

The K Space Gallery at Godinymayin Yijard Rivers Arts and Culture Centre proudly presents an exhibition by Bábbarra Women’s Centre.

Nestled in Maningrida West Arnhem Land, Bábbarra has been a vital community hub for over 34 years. Governed by local women, the centre empowers them to develop enterprises and maintain sustainable livelihoods on country.

Bábbarra Designs is the main enterprise run by the centre and produces textile works using drawing, screen printing, and block printing, uniquely produced within the community. These contemporary designs narrate ancestral stories of their culture and West Arnhem Land. The reintroduction of Texta on paper during COVID-19 allowed for continued creation and storytelling during halted production.

Though the studio is now back to its full operation of printing and storytelling, the women still find a sense of peace in these drawings. – creating new and colourful depictions of tradition and stories. The Bábbarra Texta works at Godinymayin will be on display and available for purchase. For more information, contact our gallery coordinator at gallery@gyracc.org.au.
