Uninypa Ceramic


Product Details

Noelene Kenny - Small Size

This ceramic was created as part of the Uninypa project.

Uninypa is a collaborative artistic project between senior women artists of the APY Art Centre Collective’s Adelaide Studio and First Nations inmates at Adelaide Women’s Prison.

Launched in 2023, Uninypa is led by senior Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara women who are respected cultural leaders, as well as practicing artists working at the APY Adelaide Studio. Since mid 2023, these women have led weekly ceramics workshops at Adelaide Women’s Prison. These workshops provide mentorship, cultural guidance and artistic direction to First Nations inmates, particularly Pitjantjatjara & Yankunytjatjara women, currently incarcerated at Adelaide Women’s Prison and Pre-Release Centre.

Uninypa aims to build confidence, cultural connections and develop new skills in art and design practice. Once proficient, these skills can be used by women to secure genuine employment pathways once they are on the outside.

100% of income generated through sales of these products goes directly to inmates.
