MARKETPLACE: Saturday 11 September 10am – 2pm
EXHIBITION: 10 September – 24 October

This year, Desert Mob celebrates 30 years of bringing together the art and culture of First Nations artists from across desert country. Established by the Araluen Arts Centre in 1991, the first exhibition presented contemporary art and craftwork from 13 art centres and art groups, with the hope that it would become an annual event.

Three decades on, 32 art centres from Arrernte Country, the Western Desert, Martu Country, Anangu Pitjantjatjara Lands, Ngaanyatjarra Lands, Spinifex Country, the Barkly and Alyawarr Country, will be part of Desert Mob’s 30th Anniversary, maintaining its position as a special gathering in Mparntwe, for artists and audiences to share and experience one of the strongest art movements and expressions of First Nations culture in the world.
