The Northern Peninsula Area Arts Centre (NPA) is located in the beautiful Aboriginal community of New Mapoon, 40kms from the Tip of Cape York Peninsula, the northern most point on the Australian Continent.
Our artists hail from the three Aboriginal Communities of Injinoo, Umagico and New Mapoon, and two Torres Strait Islander Communities of Bamaga and Seisia. Together, they make up the five communities of the Northern Peninsula Area.
With such diverse communities, all in close proximity, our artists draw inspiration for their artworks from the land, sea, family & cultural ties, language and traditional stories passed down through song and dance.
As the only arts centre in the NPA region, our vision is to promote, preserve, empower, harness and capture the artistic creative talents of our artists and their artworks that showcases the rich cultural diversity that is the NPA.
