Maruku Arts: Western & Central Desert Artists


Anangu are the Pitjantjatjara, Yankunytjatjara and Ngaanyatjarra traditional owners from the Western and Central Deserts of Australia - also known as the NYP and APY Lands.

Maruku Arts is one of the oldest independent not-for-profit arts organisations, owned and governed by Anangu artists of the Western and Central Desert regions of Australia, with more than 35 years experience serving communities across three states: Northern Territory, South Australia, and Western Australia.

Maru means ‘black’ and Ku means ‘belonging to’ which translates as Belonging to Anangu (the Aboriginal people of the region).

The Maruku organisation was established around the idea that traditional methodologies together with contemporary art forms, can be supported and promoted by their own people from their own homelands. The vision asserts a powerful connection to country.

Based at Mutitjulu, in Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park, Maruku represents over 500 artists across 22 communities in the region.
