Information

Established in the late 1970’s, 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.All proceeds from art sales, art commissions and cultural tourism is returned to the community to support our ongoing program of arts and cultural projects.

Refurbished in 2011 the distinctive quality about Waringarri Aboriginal Arts is the sense of an authentically creative and collaborative environment. Artist studios extend into landscaped gardens areas. Verandas are supported with individually painted poles and pathways of sandblasted pavers present a range of artist designs. The Dawang Gallery is a unique cultural information space presenting selected works from the Waringarri collection complimented with multi-media presentations to share the richness of Miriwoong cultural identity with both community and visitors.

There are more than 100 artists supported through the centre which also includes artists from the remote Kira Kiro Art Centre in Kalumburu on the northern Kimberley coast. Artists are supported by a team of local Aboriginal arts-workers.
