Upstairs, the large Conference Room (with adjacent kitchen and toilet facilities) features bountiful sunlight, high ceilings and a capable technical fit out.

Tandanya also houses a theatre, suitable for performances, lectures and product launches, with a capacity of 147 raked seats, and a projection booth.

Gallery Shop

Tandanya is Adelaide’s premier destination for purchasers of authentic Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander original art and artefacts and limited edition prints.

Tandanya’s Gallery Shop also features a range of souvenir and other appropriately licensed products such as scarves, purses, T shirts and napery, where royalties are paid to the artist for the reproduction of their copyrighted work.

Tandanya supports and promotes Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, art centres and individual artists across Australia. Where possible, art is sourced directly from the artist.

Tandanya is a member signatory to the Indigenous Art Code, a national code of conduct that reflects our ethical practices in relation to artists. This means you can purchase with confidence in the authenticity of your purchase and its value, as a minimum of 60% of the retail price is returned to the artist or art centre for their ongoing support and economic viability. The balance is retained to cover operational costs.

In the Gallery Shop you will find paintings, yidakis (didjeridoos), boomerangs, clapsticks, dance boards, hand-woven baskets, ceramics, coasters, plates and other table accessories. We also have CDs, DVDs, books, jewellery, clothing and much much more.

The Tandanya Gallery Shop has something to suit everyone’s budget.

The Gallery Shop specialises in welcoming visitors from overseas, with staff skilled in packing your purchases ready for travel, or arranging freight or mail services to get your purchases to their destination safely and in a timeframe that suits your travel plans. The staff also offer advice on claiming the GST on your purchases at your Australian disembarkation airport.

Please note that when you purchase artwork from the Gallery Shop or our online presence, copyright in the work is retained by the artist in all circumstances.
