Erub is a tropical volcanic island 160 km North East of Cape York on the edge of the Great Barrier Reef. Surrounded by fringing reef and traditional stone fish traps it is home to approx 400 Erubam le (people) from four tribal groups. Our seafaring heritage has traditions in elaborately carved and decorated canoes, carved stone and intricately made dance costumes and weaponry. Stories of creation and events are passed down through song and dance keeping cultural traditions vibrantly alive.
Erub Arts seeks to preserve culture – we want our community
to have a strong Erubam le identity. Our art centre works to revitalise our
traditional culture and promote it to the world.
