Thomasina Simon Biography

Language: Murinpatha

Art centre/region: Wadeye (Port Keats) NT

Thomasina attended Kormilda College in Darwin and works as Child Care Worker at Victoria Daly Regional Council, Wadeye. There are at least seven languages spoken by the people living in the remote Daly River region which also locates various traditional clan based arts and cultural practices. The Wadeye community (formerly the Port Keats mission) is a hub for these clan groups and cultural practices, but does not have any formal arts or culture space.
