WHO WE WORK WITH
Warlukurlangu Artists’ Aboriginal Corporation
Warlukurlangu Artists is one of the longest running and most successful Aboriginal-owned art centres in Central Australia. Located at Yuendumu, 300km northwest of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory, the art centre is both a stronghold of traditional Warlpiri culture and an essential part of Yuendumu’s community life.
Warlukurlangu means “belonging to fire” in Warlpiri, and is named after a Fire Dreaming west of Yuendumu. Owned and governed by its more than 600 members, Warlukurlangu art centre is famous for its gloriously colourful acrylic paintings and fine limited-edition prints. Many of its members’ works are highly collectable.
Established in 1985, Warlukurlangu Artists’ Aboriginal Corporation has a well regarded international profile. Artworks have been featured in hundreds of exhibitions around the globe and have been reproduced in many publications.

Artists of Ampilatwatja
Ampilatwatja (pronounced um-bludder-witch) The Artists of Ampilatwatja community was established in 1999 near Alice Springs in the Northern Territory. The work produced by the artists is recognisably distinct from other Aboriginal artistic communities, due to the application of fine dots and the often bright and child-like figurative depiction of the land.
