Art Centres Online: A virtual event of story-telling direct from the desert.

Celebrate the evolving expression of Central Australian Aboriginal Art over eight days with Desart’s series of short films and online MarketPlace.

Speaking from Country, artists share the stories of their work, culture and communities. Be taken into the art centres and onto the homelands by these story keepers and experience the diversity of storytelling and contemporary practice through a program of 14 films.

Following the program of films, the online MarketPlace is a chance to purchase works from these artists and more emerging and established from across the desert. Representing the many cultural groups of the regions, the MarketPlace will showcase a wide range of styles and mediums including Tjanpi sculptures, ceramic pots, paintings on canvas, works on paper as well as products and merchandise.
