Bábbarra Women’s Centre enables local women to develop and run women-centred enterprises that support healthy and sustainable livelihoods.
Bábbarra Designs is their main enterprise. They run a textile workshop specialising in the production of hand-printed fabric design, as well as a skilled sewing team and are one of only a few Indigenous textile-producing art centres in Australia that design, print and sew product onsite, in community.
Bábbarra Women’s Centre is governed by women for women, led by the strong voices of our Bábbarra Women’s Board. In this space, women are in charge.
Bábbarra Women’s Centre ispart of Bawinanga Aboriginal Corporation, which was set up by Maningrida community leaders in 1974 to support people to live on their homelands.
