DESERT MOB ARTS AND OUTBACK TOUR 2019
5th - 10th September 2019
Join a group of no more than six people in Alice Springs for a six day Australian outback tour. Arrive in time to attend the Desert Mob art exhibition opening, an important annual gathering of indigenous artists from Central Australia and border communities of South Australia & Western Australia. Be part of the audience at Desert Mob Cultural Symposium Day at Araluen Centre, visit Indigenous art galleries, see the spectacular MacDonnell Ranges (Tjoritja) and browse the stalls of the annual Aboriginal Artists Marketplace before heading out on the Tanami Track to stay in an Aboriginal community.
Be introduced to the incredible Yuendumu Mens Museum, open for public viewing for the first time in forty years after a conservation project in partnership with local Walpiri elders. See art in progress at Warlukurlangu Aboriginal Artists Association, one of the most successful art centres in the region and gain insight into the internationally acclaimed work of Central Desert artists. Stay in comfortable accomodation, this is not a camping trip. Tour includes a bush trip picnic hosted by traditional owners in their magnificent desert country.
