Warlukurlangu Artists

Warlukurlangu Artists’ Aboriginal Corporation is a fully Aboriginal owned and governed art centre. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the sale of all art works go directly back to the artists and their community projects. 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. Established in 1985, Warlukurlangu Artists’ Aboriginal Corporation has a well-regarded international profile. 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.
