Gallery Yampu set to close (forever) PAAF lives on and looks to the future

Port Adelaide Artists Forum and Dragon Boats SA have been formally instructed to vacate Gallery Yampu on June 28th 2023. The PAAF Management Committee is devastated, as we know heaps of people in the community will be. Yes, we did know that one day we would have to move from our beloved Gallery Yampu however, we only found out a few weeks ago with a quick departure date given and it has been a shock.

A brief bit of the story: The State Government had offered the building to PAEC before and after the local council elections last year but neither the former or current PAE council wanted to take on the building (due to its state) and let us remain, so the building goes back to Cedarwoods Developers on July 1st. PAAF asked the State Government to ask Cedarwoods if we could vacate in December or October but alas we were only given an extension from May to June.

PAAF will be moving temporarily to The Packing Shed at Hart’s Mill whilst DBSA will move to another location.

PAAF and DBSA - art and sport, an unlikely partnership in the beginning, however both organisations have been determined to make it work and together have managed Gallery Yampu for 12 years really successfully with many parties and happy events along the way.

PAAF Management Committee is sad but also looking forward to new possibilities that the future may hold.

We will end our wonderful time at Gallery Yampu with a few events: more news soon about an exhibition, art auction, garage sale and of course the most exciting demolition party ever. Keep your eye on PAAF/Gallery Yampu official facebook pages for details.

Yampu is the Kaurna word for dolphin.

In partnership with PAAF

The Lartelare Kaurna Womens Art Project is a collaboration between Kaurna Elder Aunty Margaret Brodie, Jennifer Eadie and invited Kaurna women connected to Port Adelaide.

Grounded in care and respect, the women will come together over the next 6 months at Gallery Yampu to share stories while creating a place-responsive artwork.

Aunty Margaret sums this up as:

“A group of strong women standing tall and coming together, this strength could make change”.

The community created, large-scale work will hold and share these women’s cultural stories with the public.

The project has been invited to be part of Tarnanthi Festival 2023, with 2 interconnected exhibitions to be held at Gallery Yampu and Vitalstatistix during the festival.

To date, the project has been supported by OSCA, a PAE Placemaking Grant and an Arts SA project grant.

More details to come.
