About this event
The Ngurra Nyingu ‘We are from this Country’ Art Exhibition is a contemporary extension of Woodside’s respect for Aboriginal culture. The exhibit has evolved over the past 12 years and showcases the importance of art and culture amongst the Aboriginal groups in Roebourne and surrounding communities across the west Pilbara.
Ngurra Nyingu Art Exhibition brings to you an exciting, enriching and energetic experience. The exhibit provided an opportunity for artists to show their visual culture in a formal setting outside of their region.
Woodside places great value on working with Aboriginal communities in the places they are active. Continuing to build and strengthen our relationships with the Aboriginal people in the Pilbara region is particularly important. In 2007 Woodside became a party to the Burrup and Maitland Industrial Estates Agreement and further committed to working with the local Ngarluma, Yindjibarndi, Yaburara, Mardudhunera and Wong-Goo-Tt-Oo Aboriginal groups. These groups are key stakeholders and advisors who help Woodside continue to responsibly manage cultural heritage, including rock art, in the vicinity of the Pluto LNG Park.
