– Anindilyakwa Art Centre –


The Beginnings

Anindilyakwa Art is located on Groote Eylandt in the Gulf of Carpentaria in the Northern Territory. The Art Centre was established in 2005 by the Anindilyakwa Land Council to help local artists promote and sell their artwork. Until the opening of the Art Centre the local artists were very limited in outlets for art sales, usually selling to the local mining community.


Where we are now

Anindilyakwa Arts is now a thriving hub of creativity - currently representing over 100 Anindilyakwa artists.

We are proud to be operating under the Anindilyakwa Land Council and working together to grow and develop our art centre to create sustainable and meaningful jobs for the future.
