We’re the hub for arts in the Barkly, a region that covers an area of around 322, 717 square kilometres of Australia’s Northern Territory.
The largest town in the region is Tennant Creek, approximately 1000km south of Darwin and 500km north of Alice Springs, a place where vivid blue skies form a canopy over a vast expanse of red dust. And that’s where you’ll find us. From our visual arts and music studios in the heart of Tennant Creek, we do outreach with the area’s remote communities, producing art, music and events that tell the stories of the Barkly.
What we do
We collaborate with remote Indigenous communities to foster access, development and recognition of arts in the Barkly.
Why it matters
Art made here celebrates and preserves ancient cultures and languages. It brings the community together, fosters social and spiritual fulfilment and provides employment and income.
