The Tiwi Strong Women’s Collection is being developed in collaboration with three remote Tiwi Art Centres. Each garment features hand-screen printed and hand painted fabrics created by Indigenous artists and each garment sold will provide income to artists – providing a source of income to their remote desert community.
The mission of NORTH is to facilitate the economic agency of remote Aboriginal artists and art centres by generating business and creating meaningful employment opportunities. In turn, we aim to strengthen community pride and agency.
Our samples are ready, our artists are excited, but it’s coming to crunch time and we need financial support to get us over the line!
Your contribution will make an absolutely markable difference in enabling us to launch The Tiwi Strong Women’s Collection, which would not be possible without philanthropic support.
– $2,000 worth of garments – samples for photography for artists.
– Photography on community, in the Tiwi Islands featuring 6 artists from across Melville and Bathurst Islands.
