Warakurna Artists is a 100% indigenous owned and governed art centre located close to the Great Central Road in the Ngaanyatjarra Lands of Western Australia. The art centre provides services to artists living in and visiting Warakurna, Wanarn & Patjarr communities through a range of programs designed to support artists at all stages of their careers.
Warakurna Artists was founded in 2005 and quickly established itself as an energetic community enterprise, focused on the preservation of Ngaanyatjarra culture & Tjukurrpa through the practice of painting. Although painting is the primary activity, the art centre is also an integrated community asset that provides services beyond the reach of the studio, including the facilitation of trips on country, social advocacy & local employment. Warakurna Artists is renowned for its expressive & contemporary Western Desert style and its continuity with history and tradition.
