Minyma Kutjara Arts Project
Irrunytju (Wingellina), WA
Minyma Kutjara Arts Project is a not-for-profit community-based enterprise representing artists from the remote community of Irrunytju (Wingellina) in Western Australia, 10 kilometres from the tri-state border with the Northern Territory and South Australia. The artists belong to the Pitjantjatjara language and cultural group and have re-established a centre for dynamic and culturally important work. Drawing from ancient Tjukurrpa (ancestral creation stories), the project supports a variety of creative activities, including painting, metal sculpture, punu (wood) carving, tjanpi (grass) weaving, hot-poker seed work and the production of bush medicine.
