Exhibition postponed

24 March – In a measure to safeguard public health, the City of Fremantle decided to close Fremantle Arts Centre, the Moores Building Gallery and other services from Monday 23 March until further notice. This exhibition has therefore been postponed.

Spanning music, fashion, design, writing and photography, Wilurarra Creative is an arts hub in the remote community of Mirlirrtjarra (Warburton) on the Ngaanyatjarra Lands, 900km north-west of Kalgoorlie.

For the past 16 years Wilurarra Creative has supported Ngaanyatjarra young adults to explore and express personal and collective identity, capturing the songs, stories, styles, language, artwork and living creativity of contemporary Ngaanyatjarra culture.

This April the Wilurarra Creative hub will be recreated in the FAC gallery with a photographic studio, selfie booth, hair salon and art works which make a bold statement on the culture, style and unique voices of Western Desert people.

Wilurarra Creative will also launch the second edition of Alanya magazine. Ngaanyatjarra slang for ‘looking good’ Alanya sets new trends in design, photography, fashion and story-telling straight outta the Ngaanyatjarra lands.
