Welcome to the website of Djilpin Arts Aboriginal Corporation, in the remote community of Beswick (Wugularr) in the Northern Territory. Here you can share a few of the many things we do at Djilpin Arts. Meet some of our people, see some of our artworks, listen to our songs, and hear the stories that we sing and dance for country, family and culture. We hope this will encourage you to want to find out more, to come back again (we are always busy and frequently have new things to share) and perhaps to come and visit us in our community.
The new books are here and available at $40 soft cover, $50 hard cover.
