Artist and art centre 

Dora Diaguma is a Kuninjku woman from Maningrida, in Western Central Arnhem land. Her design is hand screen printed by the women of Bábbarra Women’s Centre in Maningrida. ‘Bábbarra’ is a big billabong near Maningrida – it also means ‘girls’ or ‘women’. The Women’s Centre is made up of women from more than 12 language groups in the Maningrida region, and is home to Bábbarra Designs (founded in 1989) a social enterprise where artists design and handprint textiles that tell the ancestral stories of their Arnhem Land country and cultures.
