“It was mainly Lucy, her sister, and Nancy Guyula who were very proactive to start an art center. They were strongly motivated to ensure that their skills and stories would be preserved for future generations to learn from and enjoy.” – Silke Roth, Gapuwiyak Culture and Arts Manager 2010 – 2013



In the next few episodes of our Gapuwiyak Culture and Arts History Series #gapuwiyakdhäwu we will be featuring the dhäwu as told by Silke @the_schnille, our first Manager since our inception in 2009 - or ‘Arts and Crafts Program Coordinator’, as it was known back then.

If you’ve been keeping up with this series from last year, you may remember Silke from Parts I-III, as the crucial force who wrote the Strategic Plan which articulated the need for a dedicated space for artists to sell their work, share and preserve cultural practices, and get access to resources and support. So in many ways she had been a part of the art centre’s development since the beginning. To catch up on the previous posts, see Our History button on our profile page!👆🏾

Barunga recap • ft. Paul Maymuru

✨ what a blast the long weekend was in Barunga! We’ve now made it back to Gapuwiyak and had a breather. Thanks to all our friends and gurruṯumirr (family) who supported us at Barunga Festival. It’s always a great time and we look forward to the next one!

Meanwhile in Narrm, Paul’s exhibition is still on, only until June 22 at the Fiona and Sidney Myer Gallery, around the corner from the NGV! Contact us directly if you’re interested in buying any of the works ✨
