Yarrenyty Arltere Artists is an important place for people from Yarrenyty Arltere Town Camp in Alice Springs. It is the vibrant beating heart of this small but dynamic community of Arrernte, Luritja, Warlpiri and Pitjantjatjara families. It is where people make art, work out problems, look after family and plan for their future.

Established in 2000, it has become an internationally recognised art centre. The beautiful soft sculptures that it is renowned for, made from recycled bush-dyed blankets, are held in major public and private collections across Australia and internationally and have twice won the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards’ 3D art award.

Working in soft sculptures, textiles, etchings and film, this vibrant art centre has given opportunity and voice to people who have often been marginalised. Yarrenyty Arltere Artists works with Tangentyere Artists, the hub for Town Camp arts.
