Project Summary

The Arnhembrand project aimed to raise national and global awareness of the work by Indigenous communities living in west Arnhem Land to preserve their unique culture and ecology.

Arnhembrand was an independent art, science and stories project that worked with the Karrkad Kanjdji Trust to promote the objectives of healthy country and healthy community in the Djelk Indigenous Protected Area. Using new mediums and technologies, the project participants worked with these communities to give a new voice to the cultural and environmental challenges they face. It aimed to highlight the critical relationship that the Djelk clans have with their land and to tell their positive story to a wider audience in fresh and exciting ways.
