‘Art is old. It was passed on from our ancestors to our grandfathers to our fathers to us. Art is talking about the land, the sea, about our culture, about our connection, about our kinship relationships – songs, dance, names, places, country, sacred sites. These things are important to us.’
This year, more than ever before, there has been a critical need to support Indigenous businesses, artists and remote communities across Australia.
Arnhem Northern and Kimberley Artists Aboriginal Corporation (ANKA) is proud to partner with Pinterest on an exciting new initiative that aims to promote, celebrate and showcase Indigenous Art Centres and artists across Northern Australia.
Timed to coincide with NAIDOC Week 2020, Northern Indigenous Renaissance is a virtual exhibition from remote ANKA supported Art Centres.
