Martumili Artists

Martumili Artists span several communities in the Great Sandy, Little Sandy and Gibson Deserts in the East Pilbara. The art centre, located in Newman, is Martu governed and is hosted by the Shire of East Pilbara with generous support by BHP Billiton.

Art helps to keep the culture of the Martu communities strong. It encourages the telling of stories and the sharing of knowledge across generations.

Through the art centre, Martu people make sure Martu voices are heard and Martu people are visible.

The sale of Martumili art sustains Martu community, the artists and their stories.

"Creating and exhibiting art work provides us the opportunity to travel within Australia and internationally. Art makes us happy and is good fun" 
- Linda James, Punmu Community, July 2010
