Maningrida Arts and Culture Project

Architects Without Frontiers is proud to be working with the The Bawinanga Aboriginal Corporation on the Maningrida Arts and Culture project. The BAC is a progressive Aboriginal corporation and major service provider based in Maningrida, representing the Aboriginal people of the homelands and 32 outstations surrounding Maningrida in West Arnhem Land. 

The BAC feel the timing is right to significantly improve and expand the existing Maningrida Arts and Culture infrastructure. The integration of a new Artefacts Museum and the expansion of the Babbarra Women’s Centre with a remodelled Maningrida Arts and Culture Facility is an exciting development for the Maningrida community and will be key to preserving the rich cultural history and local languages, and supporting current and new artists of the region.
