Join AGWA for an unmissable celebration of Kimberley art and culture with artist talks, art demonstrations, cultural performances, and family activities.

Learn about the art of pearl shell carving with the Sibosado brothers – Darrell and Garry, and bush-dying with natural materials with Eva and Ivy Nargoodah.

Hear from Mowanjum Arts on ochre crushing and Wandjina Rock art education, or watch Mervyn Street of Mangkaja Arts carve and shave a cow hide. Waringarri Aboriginal Arts will demonstrate boab nut carving.

AGWA and art centre curators, along with artists will talk about their experiences across the day.
