"Jilamara artists have world renowned reputations of producing high quality traditional Tiwi art. Working only with natural ochres from the immediate surrounds, Jilamara artists create paintings, works on paper, barks, ironwood tutuni and pukamani poles and pandanus weavings. Keeping culture strong and handing down knowledge to Tiwi youth are core values of this not for profit indigenous owned organisation. Jilamara is a creative place where artists, work, learn and grow together." (Jilamara Arts - Melville Island)
