join the cultural revolution
JONAS JAJA enables the exchange of cultural practices for Aboriginal women from different tribes and promotes the celebration of arts and culture for and by Aboriginal women. The repair of the Seven Sisters songline for our Stolen Generations, displaced mob and country, underpins the project. Songlines tell the stories of dreaming tracks that cover the country. The Seven Sisters songline traverses the country from east to west, north to south and travels through Barngarla country from Port Lincoln to Whyalla, Iron Knob, Port Augusta and up through Beltana.
The gallery will serve as the hub for a growing roster of exhibitions, cultural workshops and small events, providing a safe space for Aboriginal women’s healing and the facilitation of education with non-Indigenous people. Located at the gateway to the stunning Flinders Ranges, the gallery features fine art from the APY Lands, Western Desert, Central Desert and local Aboriginal artists as part of the national conversation about working together for a shared future.
