Tandanya is the trading name of the National Aboriginal Cultural Institute Inc., incorporated in 1989 as a community-controlled, not-for-profit organisation.


Tandanya is the Kaurna (pron. Garna) word for ‘place of the Red Kangaroo’. The Kaurna people are the traditional owners and custodians of the Adelaide Plains. Tandanya’s name reflects the organisation’s ongoing commitment to honour and respect the traditional owners and custodians for this country.

Tandanya is a visionary and vibrant place for all to experience contemporary and traditional Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural expressions through the visual and performing arts. Tandanya enjoys a national and international reputation for innovation and excellence in visual arts programming, featuring emerging and established artists from around the country and overseas.
