(Making successful business together)

On now

A photographic exhibition from the Arnhem Land Progress Aboriginal Corporation (ALPA) celebrating 50 years of Yolŋu economic independence, enterprise,

self-determination, culture and ingenuity.

Gumurr’manydji Manapanmirr Djäma is proudly produced by an all Indigenous Community Curatorial team from Galiwin’ku, Gapuwiyak, Ramingining, Milingimbi and Minjilang - where ALPA operates today.


Each photo has been carefully selected by community members and leaders and celebrates the contribution Yolŋu people have made in building better futures and stronger communities. Experience this insightful exhibition presented by the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory in collaboration with ALPA.

This exhibition was made possible by the Restart Invest to Sustain and Expand (RISE) Fund - an Australian Government initiative.

“The [online] gallery was fun. I liked learning about our people from different communities.
I liked it when I recognised family in the photos too.
I want to finish the quiz.”
