Help our small initiative make a big difference in the lives of Aboriginal women.
This October, Bábbarra Women’s Centre’s textiles will be exhibited at the Australian Embassy in France.
Be part of our journey and donate here:
Our crowdfunding campaign is supporting the various costs of producing this exhibition, and of getting five artists and two managers/curators over to France to be part of the exhibition opening and to share our story with the world.
We need your donations to make this once in a lifetime exhibition possible. Your donations will support:
1. Travel items (suitcases, passport wallets, warm clothing, shoes, socks, medication etc)
2. Costs in Paris (metro tickets, food, gallery entry)
3. Various passports costs
4. Creating the exhibition
5. Back-up in Maningrida
Become a retailer
We are always looking for new retailers. If you would like to stock our fabrics or product range, we’d love to hear from you.
Volunteer opportunities occasionally exist for people who are ready to roll up their sleeves, work hard and have a meaningful experience. If you are able to self-fund your return trip to Maningrida, contact us to discuss opportunities and permit requirements.
Online sales are the best way to support the sustained economic independence of our member artists. We’re in a really remote region of northern Australia, 500 km by road from Darwin, and the roads are often flooded and impassable. When you buy from us online, you’re helping Babbarra artists to generate an income through every season. Visit our shop.
We are a small social enterprise with limited external support. Whether you can invest a little or a lot, every donation is valuable.
Donations over $2.00 are 100% tax-deductible. You can contribute by filling out our secure online form.
Seed funding and in-kind contributions are welcome, please contact us to discuss.
Give to our op shop
Bábbarra Women’s Centre believes in re-using and recycling, and we also love to look great!
We are proud to operate the community op shop, where we sell affordable second-hand clothing, bed linen and towels. We accept all donations, so please send us your unwanted goods.
Our op shop helps the community, because people can afford to buy those clothes. It’s a good story.
