Named after a bush banana that disperses spectacular parasol-shaped seeds, Magabala Books is Australia's oldest independent Indigenous publishing house dedicated to spreading the seeds of Indigenous culture through the sharing of stories.
A Lotterywest Grant helped transform its Broome premises into a cultural hub which reconfigured spaces to feature an on-site working space for authors and illustrators and an outdoor space for community engagement programs.
CEO Anna Moulton shared what the new space will bring to the organisation: "Our new expanded shop and enhanced workspaces for authors and illustrators will strengthen Magabala Books' accessibility and local profile. We now have a better venue for public events and community engagement. Our new façade is a bright and proud entry statement to Broome."
