Friends of Marnin

We are proud of the partners we work with to enhance our impact.

Earthed Foundation

Earthed helped to facilitate ‘Design Within Country’, an exciting collaboration between young Melbourne designers and emerging Fitzroy Crossing artists keen to learn more about the fashion industry. Together the creative team developed a stunning collection of 12 pieces that were featured in the ‘From Country to Couture’ runway show, as part of the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair. The fashion pieces were also showcased at Fash Fest in Canberra and a limited-edition range was created following DAAF. The ‘Design Within Country’ project has sewn seeds for future design projects at Marnin Studio and the partnership with Earthed is enabling us to explore exciting new opportunities.

Healing Foundation

It is with great excitement that Marninwarntikura is collaborating with the Healing Foundation over the next three years to help explore and implement healing activities and processes for the women, children and families of the Fitzroy Valley. The Healing Foundation is working with Marninwarntikura to design a healing framework that will capture the primary elements and principles of our healing journey.
