Tandanya is owned and managed by the national Aboriginal Cultural Institue Inc. It is Australia’s oldest Aboriginal-owned and managed multi-arts centre.
‘Tandanya’ is the Kaurna (pronounced Garna) word for ‘place of the Red Kangaroo’.
Tandanya’s name reflects the organisation’s ongoing commitment to honour and respect the traditional owners and custodians for this country.
Tandanya boasts several gallery spaces that feature a minimum of twelve exhibitions each year by acclaimed local, national and international artists. Our Curator develops or selects quality exhibitions that reflect the vibrancy and diversity of cultural expressions in different media within Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
