Esperance Nyungar Aboriginal Corporation (ENAC) is a Land Management Corporation established in 2002 to manage land given back to the Traditional Owners of the Nyungar Community. ENAC is a Not for Profit, Non Government Organisation that relies solely on income earned from leasing farm land and through the Art Gallery and Shop.
The income ENAC generates has to support the organisation, and help with the management of ENAC lands and the development of ENAC projects and programs. As well as the farm leases, ENAC also manages nature reserves, a waterhole and bush blocks that do not generate income but require funds to maintain and protect these areas.
The ENAC Art Gallery and Shop has reasonable prices and all royalties go back to the Artists. ENAC stock Aboriginal Art and Traditional Crafts from Communities in Western Australia, as well as from local artists, including didgeridoos, tapping sticks, dot paintings, lacquered hand painted eggs, local wood carvings and cutting boards.
ENAC also support Fair Trade and stock many FT products including jewellery, hand knitted toys, dolls and beanies, scooby wire bowls and jewellery, woven baskets, batik wall hangings, silk scarves, and painted bags to name a few.
ENAC sponsor and support several local events, activities and community groups as well as developing and delivering a wide range of community projects and programs. Some examples of projects we have supported and delivered to date include our Pallet to Furniture Woodwork Program, Our Bush Tucker Garden Project, the Dismantle Bike Program, the Restore Hope Foundation Community Soup Kitchen, and the Esperance Bulldogs Football Team.
ENAC also partner with other agencies to support community projects with some examples including our Work for the Dole Project with Max Employment that was carried out over a three year period, our Go Kart Project with WA Police for Kids at Risk, and our Deadly Nyungar Art Project where Nyungar Murals were painted and installed at the Cannery Art Centre and the Esperance Court House.
