Ngurratjuta Artists Paint Mural at Alice Plaza

The Ngurratjuta Artists are showcasing some new work on the walls of Alice Plaza!

In partnership with Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education and Alice Plaza, the wall of the lift shaft in the centre will be transformed into The Gap by Peter Taylor. The initial design was created through workshops held at Batchelor with teacher Brigida Stewart.


Painting on the mural will happen Mondays through to Thursdays for the next three weeks. Check out some of the action that started this morning.
