Established 25 years ago in Adelaide, South Australia, Tandanya is Australiaâ€™s oldest Aboriginal-owned and managed multi-arts centre. The word Tandanya comes from the language of the original inhabitants of the Adelaide plains, the Kaurna people (pronounced Garna), and means "Place of the Red Kangaroo".
Tandanya continues to enjoy a national and international reputation for innovation and excellence in visual art exhibitions featuring emerging and acclaimed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists from around the country.
We are open from 9am to 4pm six days a week (Monday â€“ Saturday) and closed all public holidays.
Entry into the Gallery spaces is FREE however charges do apply to experience the 12noon cultural performance and presentation.
