WELCOME TO THE NAMATJIRA PROJECT
We would like to acknowledge Western Aranda people of the Central Australian Desert and their stunning country on which the project is based.
The Namatjira project is a multilayered, long-term arts project that is many things to many people. It includes a creative community development project, an original theatrical work, watercolour exhibition and a documentary film. It is also a celebration of the acclaimed watercolour artist Albert Namatjira’s life and legacy.
Run by arts and social change organisation Big hART, the project began in 2009, and partners with the Namatjira family and many community, government and business partners. Having had many successes, it is now working to ensure these translate into real and lasting benefit for the Namatjira family and Western Aranda communities.
