Art Centre: Nagula Jarndu
Yawuru Jarndu Aboriginal Corporation – trading as Nagula Jarndu (Saltwater Woman) is a Not for Profit incorporated body with a membership of 70 Indigenous women and is governed by 8 Yawuru women Directors.
Yawuru Jarndu first started operating in 1987 when it was established as an Indigenous women’s resource centre by Yawuru women, with the aim of recording oral history and preserving Yawuru language and culture.
The organisation evolved into an arts and textiles business, offering training in screen printing and dressmaking, producing fabrics for clothing and home wares, designed and made by local Indigenous artists. A retail outlet was established in 1998 called Nagula Jarndu Designs which proved a successful venture.
