Mimi is an Aboriginal owned and operated not for profit art centre. More than 50 per cent of sales are returned to the Artists with the remaining proceeds going towards running the art centre and providing customers with an ethical way to purchase Indigenous artwork. Visitors to Mimi can often enjoy the experience of artists painting at the centre.

Representing Artists from the entire Katherine region, Mimi collects artwork from an expansive 380,000 sq km. The Katherine region spans from the Tanami Desert in the west up to the Kimberley’s and across to the saltwater and freshwater people of Arnhem Land.

Mimi’s artwork is as diverse as the lands it represents; styles include polymer paint on canvas, bark painting, fibre weaving, jewellary, didgeridoos, limited edition prints, carving and weaponry.
