News from Arlpwe


Arlpwe Art Gallery today joined CDU in their symposium titled “Indigenous Knowledge’s” in a changing world and Arlpwe Art Gallery became the ‘first’ remote Art Gallery to go ‘live’ stream up in Darwin.
We saw Stuart Downs explain about artefacts made in Ali Curung and as well Meredith Riley gave a talk about jewellery making, message sticks and coolamons. A short tour of the Art Gallery then followed.


The day included pottery and painting where Art Centre staff and older artists shared with the children stories about culture. If the enthusiasm is anything to go by, then the future is in good hands, this collaborative ‘Culture Day’ in Ali Curung created new opportunities for intergenerational learning.
