Success for Tiwi Women

The Women’s Centre at Wurrumiyanga has been transformed and now has a well-equipped kitchen. The women have been learning to prepare healthy and delicious food on a budget whilst gaining skills and confidence to prepare for employment.

Other highlights have included tie dyeing, and hosting the Women’s Health Week and Rise Up program. Our supervisors Evita Puruntatameri and Sophia Tipuamantumirri also presented at the Australian Evaluation Society Conference.

In Pirlangimpi, the Women’s Centre continues to produce amazing products from printed fabrics, using the skills gained from their Visual Arts course. The range is always expanding and their Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair stall did them proud. The women have also hosted two very successful open days, which will be a regular occurrence in 2020.
