Durrmu is pleased to announce a new program starting up at Durrmu Arts.
NIMBI is a digital repository of cultural material and applied art history. We will embark on a program of digitally repatriating old works from institutions across the globe back to the source community of Peppimenarti.
Through existing relationships such as the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection in Virginia USA and new relationships as we go, we will build a huge archive of song, dance, art and community and cultural legacy for the people of the West Daly Region to share and access.
NIMBI is a growing database of historical moments and cultural importance, it will act as a resource for many stakeholders in the community and it will provide a unique and vital source of art history for future artists.
The legacy, language and knowledge of this region will be kept for all to access at Durrmu Arts.
Stay tuned for more information about NIMBI in the coming months.
