Provenance Arts opens in Darwin

We are delighted to announce that Provenance Arts, a wholly owned subsidiary of Injalak Arts, is now open. After 20 months of planning, we threw a huge party last Monday afternoon 23 July 2018 and were joined by more than 200 people. Provenance Arts is an inclusive, welcoming space that showcases artists, art centres and cultures from the Top End and remote Australia - Indigenous and non-Indigenous. At Provenance Arts we combine shopping, exhibitions, educational information, demonstrations of arts and crafts, films and events as well as Australia’s first specialist Indigenous cultural tourism information service. We have created a new model for sharing the unique cultures of the Top End and remote Australia with you.
Come in and browse our huge range of fabric, bags, cards, homewares, gifts, books, fibre crafts and fine art.


The Provenance Arts website was launched the same day. Visit 
See our facebook album of photos from the afternoon.
