Waringarri Aboriginal Arts is a living, growing art centre celebrating the uniqueness of Miriwoong cultural identity.
Established in the early 1980s, in the heart of Miriwoong country at Kununurra in the Kimberley region of northern Australia, Waringarri artists share the importance of their Country and Culture.
Waringarri is the first wholly indigenous owned art centre established in Western Australia and one of the oldest continuously operating art centres in Australia supporting economic independence for artists and their community.
The centre operates artists’ studios and galleries and supports more than 75 artists as painters, printmakers, wood carvers, boab engravers, sculptors and textile artists. Cultural tours and performances complement the visitor experience with a rich insight into Miriwoong culture.
All proceeds from art sales, art commissions, and cultural tourism are returned to the community to support an ongoing arts and cultural projects program.
There are more than 75 artists supported through the centre which also includes artists from the Kira Kiro Artists Project in the remote community of Kalumburu on the northern Kimberley coast. Artists are supported by a team of local Aboriginal arts-workers.
