Warakurna is a community situated on the Great Central Road in the Ngaanyatjarra Lands of Western Australia. Warakurna has a long history of artistic expression. In March 2005 the Art Centre studio was opened, and is fully owned and governed by Aboriginal people, providing services to artists living and visiting Warakurna and the nearby community of Warakurna.
The Art Centre plays an important role in the community, providing cultural an social benefits in addition to economic returns. Warakurna Artists facilitates the production, distribution and sale of the artist' artwork. The paintings are vibrant and diverse, reflecting each artist's unique style stories and connection to the country. All proceeds are returned to the artists and their organisation.
