A woman’s touch.
This week, and always, we recognise and honour the strength, resilience and courage of our mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunties and daughters. Because of her, we can!

One of our hardest working artists Miriam Baadjo has a bold drawing technique and beautiful sense of colour. We can barely keep her work long enough to admire them before they are bought up by people visiting our Balgo art centre.
Let’s hope we have some left for @darwinartfair !

What a special day we had out near Old Balgo Mission yesterday. The land provided plenty of bush tucker and bush medicine, we are feeling very happy and healthy! We even managed to get some painting in.
A big thank you to @healforlifefoundation for bringing the young women along to connect with family and country after a week of workshops.
Palya!

Everyday we are blown away by the incredible art Patsy Mudgedell is producing. After her triumph at Revealed in Fremantle we are excited to announce she will be featuring in @desert_mob and @darwinartfair this year! You heard it from us first she’s “going global!”

Because of Her, We Can!
NAIDOC Week started early in Balgo. The women of @kapululangu accompanied the young girls in song and dance, teaching them the proper way.
It is so inspiring to see so many generations of women keeping culture, language, music and art strong.

Kathleen Paddoon paints Nakarra Nakarra the site of the seven sisters dreaming in country south of Balgo in the great sandy desert. Kathleen and the women of @kapululangu are on a culture trip this week at the site of the seven sisters dreaming. Kathleen is working hard on her new body of work, we look forward to seeing what this trip inspires.
