Gembel Art Collective

Gallery Detail

The Gembel art collective was established in 2003 under the guidance of the Institute for Popular Education, and its membership includes youth across Timor-Leste. The artists have little resources and have always relied upon a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) philosophy, encouraging young Timorese to think creatively.

Gembel is an Indonesian word meaning homeless person, bum or vagrant. The Gembel Art Collective co-opted this derogatory term to use as their collective name for creative projects which include visual art, music and theatre.
