Description

The Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory and the Arnhem Land Progress Aboriginal Corporation (ALPA) celebrates 50 years of the contribution of Yolŋu and shares a small part of the history and the foundations that were set by the people who were here before us.

Gumurr’manydji Manapanmirr Djäma (making successful business together) is a Yolŋu community-led exhibition. Each photo has been carefully selected by community members and leaders and celebrates the contribution Yolŋu people have made in building better futures and stronger communities.
Gumurr’manydji Manapanmirr Djäma explores historical vignettes documented through photography and reflects upon the stories by Yolŋu people within these communities. The exhibition features the first public display of images by Yolŋu members and leaders from Milingimbi, Galiwin’ku, Gapuwiyak, Ramingining and Minjilang – communities where ALPA operates today.

This exhibition was made possible by the Restart Invest to Sustain and Expand (RISE) Fund – an Australian Government initiative.

Exhibition opens to the public on Sunday 12 June | FREE | Open Daily 10am – 4pm
