Straight Outta Wilurarra

Wilurarra Creative is a creative hub located in the remote community of Mirlirrtjarra (Warburton) on the Ngaanyatjarra Lands, 900km north-west of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia, which nurtures the fields of music, fashion, design, writing and photography. The organisation supports and encourages young Ngaanyatjarra adults to explore and express their personal and collective identity. It is a place where the songs, stories, styles, language, artwork and living creativity of contemporary Ngaanyatjarra culture can flourish.
