Kaltjiti Arts is a remote community-based Aboriginal art centre in Kaltjiti / Fregon in the Aṉangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands (APY Lands) of South Australia. The heart of the small community is the art centre, which is a place of inspiration and dynamism, and a cultural focal point.
Through their artworks, elders and senior artists teach younger generations about important cultural traditions and stories, passing on knowledge that has come to them from their ancestors. Senior artists enjoy the opportunity of working together on collaborative major works, which are also used to teach younger generations skills in painting techniques and storytelling. It is this commitment to Tjukurpa and traditional painting techniques that has allowed Kaltjiti Arts to establish a reputation for artworks of the highest quality, which are also rich in cultural integrity.
Desert Mob is presented annually in Mparntwe | Alice Springs on Arrernte Country.
On behalf of Desart’s staff and art centre members, the Executive Committee humbly and respectfully acknowledge the Arrernte Apmereke Artweye (Traditional Owners) and Kwertengerle (Traditional Managers) of Mparntwe.
Desart respectfully advises Aboriginal readers that this website may contain names, images and artworks of people who have passed away.
