Mangkaja Arts Resource Centre

Mangkaja Arts Resource Centre is located in the centre of Fitzroy Crossing. It began as an extension of Karrayili Adult Education Centre, first established in 1981 for local people who wanted to learn the English language. The initiative, led by local men, provided a place where people could study and paint their personal stories, bush trips and histories.

Mangkaja is a Walmajarri word for the wet weather shelters erected during wet season. Mangkaja Arts Resource Centre is a community of artists who share land, history and culture. The diversity of artists' backgrounds, between the river and the desert, upbringings and ages is evident in the work with a mix of imagery drawn from traditional, town and station life. Artists have exhibited nationally and internationally and the corporation has an exhibitions program that seeks to maintain a balance between group and solo shows.
