If people are are looking for meaningful work, Tiwi Design will find a place for them. Some people have worked at Tiwi Design for 10 years. They might initially be very shy and unable to take phone calls without feeling intimidated. Now they are running cultural tours and telling jokes.

Someone might start working with small engines and learn to be carver as well. They have a real sense of pride in expressing their Tiwi culture and knowing people are enjoying it, buying and selling their works.

Working at Tiwi Design helps build self-esteem. They bring their people back, their mates, and say, “Look what we built.” There’s no better advertising than that, everyone wants to be part of it.

The community is excited about the new Bathurst Island Cultural Precinct development. Currently, Tiwi Design is unable to meet the demand for cultural tourism product. The project promises employment in the construction phase, and offers long-term jobs in art, culture, song and dance, as well as barista skills, hospitality and front of house. Training will be offered as part of the development project.
