NORTH works with remote community art centres to develop beautiful, high-quality products featuring fabric designed by local Indigenous artists. This collaboration helps provide growth and opportunity, both for the individual Indigenous artists as well as their communities.
Every design in The Warlu Collection is an artist’s Jukurrpa, a Dreaming Story. Sam Harris recently learned more about the work of the Warlpiri artists and honouring the cultural importance and significance of storytelling.
I loved working with NORTH. It’s so important to have initiatives like this to keep our aboriginal culture stories alive. Being one of the oldest cultures in the world, we just can’t lose it! It makes me so proud to be a part of bringing these stories to life via a beautiful garment.
Thanks to ING Dreamstarter, businesses like NORTH can be supported to make real, lasting differences in our communities.
As one of the ING Dreamstarter Crowdfunding businesses this year, NORTH raised over $75,000. This funding will enable them to deliver collections in collaboration with partnering Art centres twice a year and casually employ a local Yuendumu Community member as a Design and Development Leader.
