Collaboration is a guiding principle behind TARNANTHI and one that lies at the heart of this inaugural city-wide festival. By inviting emerging and established artists to present new work, TARNANTHI celebrates the artist’s role in shaping our world.
We have worked closely with Adelaide’s cultural institutions to present the work of over 300 artists across multiple venues to local and national audiences.
The support from principal partner BHP Billiton has been instrumental in this approach. TARNANTHI aligns with the company’s global approach to celebrating Aboriginal art and culture and supporting our communities through public-private partnerships.
The most important element of TARNANTHI lies in the creation of opportunities for the artists. Adelaide is ideally designed to enable organisations to come together and celebrate contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art.
Thank you to all of our partners across the city.
