Gab Titui Cultural Centre

Thursday Island, Torres Area

Free Entry

The art and traditions of Torres Strait Islander and Aboriginal peoples are amongst the oldest and richest in human history.

The Gab Titui Cultural Centre is a contemporary art gallery and keeping place for cultural artefacts, located on Thursday Island – land of the Kaurareg nation, the traditional custodians of the Kaiwalagal region (Inner Islands) of the Torres Strait.

The Gab Titui Cultural Centre aims to contribute to the preservation and revitalisation of the Torres Strait's rich cultures, and to the development and promotion of local Torres Strait Islander and Aboriginal art.

Through their art they are simultaneously connected to the past, engaged with the present and looking towards the future, passing on the cultural knowledge of their ancestors through designs, patterns and stories and forging contemporary expressions to mark their time.

They showcase touring exhibitions and exclusive pieces from sculptures and headdresses to intricate lino-cut prints, wood carvings and jewellery made from local materials such as pearl and sea shells. Amongst their annual events, including the bi-annual Awards, they host community and public outreach activities to allow the public (and visitors) to get involved and actively engage with touring and local artists.
