Established in 2019, Numbulwar’s first art centre – Numbulwar Numburindi Arts (NNA) - is one hundred percent owned and controlled by the community.
Born from the community’s desire to practice and engage with traditional culture, NNA is a space for artistic and cultural expression whose mission is to keep culture strong.
Champions of fibre art, NNA artists marry naturally-dyed and locally-harvested pandanus with bright and bold ghost nets and abandoned fishing line retrieved from Numbulwar’s shoreline.
Our Wulbung (baskets) and Yir (dillybags) fit as naturally in traditional applications as they do in contemporary, urban environments.
Numbulwar sits on the Rose River and belongs to the Nunggayinbala clan, one of the Wubuy or Nunggubuyu speaking clans from the region. Ceremonial activities are still very important within the region and occur regularly.
