Welcome to Marninwarntikura Women's Resource Centre
Marninwarntikura is a centre of inspiration that provides women and their families a place for positive change and leadership. Marninwarntikura is a Walmajarri word. ' Marnin' means 'women', 'Wanti' means 'big mobs of women' and 'Kura' means 'belonging to'. When said together, it means that women who belong to this region, these countries and each other, have come together.
This year’s collection was created at the remote community of Djugerari, 120kms east of Fitzroy Crossing on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert. For three weeks ten local and three visiting designers camped out on country and took inspiration from the magnificent surroundings and light. The result is a range of bush dye, lino print and hand painted outfits and accessories that will form the basis of small social businesses for the local creators. We have been thrilled by the strength of this collaboration and are so proud to present the results.
young creatives + collaborative networks + mentors
exploring + designing + creating
through cross cultural connections and designer collaborations, side by side on country and in the city.
