Arlpwe (pronounced Arlboe) means “…this country all over, no waterhole, no rivers, only soakage and spinifex country” – Mr Mick Waake
ARLPWE ART & CULTURAL CENTRE
The Arlpwe Art & Culture Centre was opened in 2008.
The name Arlpwe (pronounced Arlboe) was chosen for the Art Centre by the traditional land owners.
The traditional owners of this land belong to the Katetye language group with Allawara, Warlpiri and Warumungu being the three other language groups that form the community.
The art studio is open to the general public from 10am to 2pm Monday to Thursday. Learn about Aboriginal art and craft. See the artists at work in the women’s and men’s studio. Take part in the dance festival.
The art gallery is open to the general public by appointment. Discover artworks and artefacts. Visit the bush tucker garden. Collaborate on art projects.
Visitors are encouraged to turn off the Stuart Highway and travel to Ali Curung to view the artworks, and meet the artists and artworkers.
