WUPA is an Aboriginal word that means ‘to make' or 'to paint'. It is taken from the language of the Wanaruah people of the Hunter Valley region.
WUPA@Wanaruah (WUPA at Wanaruah) is a vehicle through which Aboriginal artists can showcase their work. The art is exhibited across a number of venues throughout the Hunter Valley for ten weeks during 2014, thereby creating an art trail through the beautiful wine region of the Hunter Valley. The exhibition provides an insight into the rich and vibrant culture of the local Aboriginal people by sharing their stories as depicted in their art.
The Wonnarua Nation Aboriginal Corporation was established in 1999 and represents the Wonnarua people. It focuses on nurturing the history and culture of the Wonnarua Nation, improving the health and education of its members and managing investments to sustain the Corporation’s work.
