Chief executive officer

Injalak Arts and Crafts Aboriginal Corporation

Injalak Arts is an Aboriginal-owned social enterprise regulated by the Office of the Registrar of indigenous Corporations, and governed by the Corporations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) Act 2006. Injalak Arts is a remote community art centre located approximately 300 km east of Darwin, just inside Arnhem Land. Formed in 1989, the focus of the art centre was screen-printing local designs on fabric and a number of young people came on board. It quickly became a hive of activity and a magnet for artists and craftspeople from throughout western Arnhem Land. The art forms grew to include painters, weavers, fabric screen printers and carvers, attracting both the young and older men and women which has seen an increase to the membership over the past 29 years.
