Bula’bula Arts is located in Ramingining, within Gurrwiliny (the heritage-listed Arafura wetlands) in North-East Arnhem Land. Bula’bula Arts, which has been running for 30 years, supports artist members in Ramingining and the 11 surrounding homeland outstations of Yatalamarra, Wulkarimirra, Ngangalala, Mulgurram, Garanydjirr, Galadjapin, Gattji, Gelirri, Manbbirri, Bundatharri and Gurulul. It is owned by its 150 artist members, who represent a spectrum of the area’s 16 clan families and speak 14 dialects of their mother tongue, YolnguMatha.
Bula’bula represents strong professional artists who produce high-quality works of art telling stories of cultural law learned through song and dance and who reinterpret this storytelling into paintings and objects, which have traditional ritual and ceremonial significance. The works produced reflect the characters of the artists, their dynamic and powerful inheritance and their innovative storytelling.
