Waringarri is the first wholly indigenous owned art centre established in the Kimberley region and one of the oldest continuously operating art centres in Australia supporting economic independence for artists and their community.

The centre operates artists’ studios and galleries and supports more than 100 artists as painters, printmakers, wood carvers, boab engravers, sculptors and textile artists. Cultural tours and performances compliment the visitor experience with a rich insight into Miriwoong culture.

All proceeds from art sales, art commissions and cultural tourism is returned to the community to support our ongoing program of arts and cultural projects.
