Warruwi is a small island off the coast of ArnhemLand in the NT.

In October we were pleased to host a visit from 3 artists together with staff members to Tali Gallery.  The artists helped to curate and hang their exhibition of weaving, paintings on paper and bark, and sculptures.   Apart from holding a formal opening after which visitors to Tali Gallery could watch and workshop with the artists, we also hosted a visit from local school children who learnt a lot about the artists’ lives, artworks and some of their traditional stories.    This clip was made in 1992 and shows some traditional aspects of the island with a Turtle story and some dancing (in the initial segment prior to showing dancing in the Torres Strait Islands):  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQvBxf1Y0Vw
