"Minyma Tjukurrpa. The young women are traveling around the country near Tjukurla with the older ladies. They are learning many things about where to collect special grasses and flowers and other types of bush tucker."
‘Pukurlpatulatju Palyara Pirrtja’ we are happy to make painting. Warakurna Artists' paintings are fresh, diverse and reflect each artist's unique style, stories, and powerful connection to country. Warakurna is a remote desert community situated approximately nine hours west of Alice Springs. The township of approximately one hundred and eighty people is nestled amongst the spectacular Rawlinson Ranges. Warakurna Artists art centre is one of the newest such developments in the Ngaanyatjarra region opening in March 2005. Warakurna Artists nurtures and promotes arguably one of the most significant art movements in Australia. It is a positive and powerful example of Aboriginal businesses managed and governed by artists and community elders ensuring the wealth of talent and economic returns are retained in the community. When you purchase artwork from an Aboriginal-owned and governed art centre, you contribute significant benefits to Yarnangu communities and beyond.” Warakurna Art Centre
