The Aṉangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY Lands) is located in remote Central Australia in the far north of South Australia. The region consists of the Pitjantjatjara, Yankunytjatjara and Ngaanyatjarra Aṉangu peoples.
In APY communities, art centres are a key source of non-government income and provide real jobs for Aṉangu people. These art centres are home to some of the best known and most collectable Indigenous artists in the country, as well as a host of young and emerging artists.
We have worked with the APY Art Centre Collective to create a diverse, beautiful and powerful collection featuring paintings by established and emerging artists. The artists who have artworks in this collection live in different communities across the APY lands, and work at their local community owned and controlled Art Centres:
Ernabella Arts based at Ernabella, also known as Pukatja. Ernabella Arts is Australia’s oldest, continuously running Indigenous Art Centre.
Tjungu Palya based in Nyapari community.
Kaltjiti Arts based in Fregon/Kaltjiti community.
Iwantja Arts based in Iwantja/Indulkana community.
Mimili Arts based in Mimili community.
Tjala Arts based in Amata community.
You can support Aṉangu people as professional artists by investing in their art for your workplace, your organisation and your home.
