Warmun Art Centre

Tracey Ramsay - Walbough


That's the bat dreaming. The bat had a fight with the crocodile. This happened in Bow River. The Binyjirrmin speared the Lalanggarran and killed it. Then that short necked turtle got a paperbark tree and put that crocodile on his back and took him to another place - but I am not allowed to talk about that other place because my Dad told me.

Warmun Art Centre is owned and governed by Gija people with 100% of income returning to the community. The centre was established in 1998 by the late founding members of the contemporary painting movement in Warmun such as Rover Thomas, Queenie McKenzie, Madigan Thomas and Hector Jandany. These elders recognised and responded to the need for a community owned and controlled centre through which they could support, maintain and promote Gija art, language and culture.

Warmun Art is here to celebrate and encourage the expression of Gija culture through the arts, and to support the continued development of innovative contemporary art by both established and emerging Warmun artists.
