The Mulka Project provides meaningful employment and empowerment to the Yirrkala community by allowing Yolngu Aboriginal People to take control of documents of their culture in modern digital media. On one side is the repatriation of valuable documentation of the region's cultural heritage that is kept in outside collections. The other is training Yolngu to take the reigns of modern media to tell their own stories from now on. We are currently dependent on government and philanthropic funding, but are developing products and services to make ourselves more sustainable into the future. Take a look around this website to get to know who we are and what projects, partnerships and opportunities we have going on.

A music video clip by Nathan Biyalnga Bidinggal, created as part of the second Community Prophets workshop at the Mulka Project in Yirrkala, funded by the Yothu Yindi Foundation. Shot in and around Yirrkala and Nhulunbuy, NT, (including the Buku-Larrnggay Mulka art centre's gallery and yidaki room), this song is about pride and strength in Yolngu culture, heritage and land while having a good Euro-Australian style education. C'mon, make this kid a star!
