Waringarri is the first wholly indigenous owned art centre established in Western Australia 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.

Refurbished in 2011 the distinctive quality about Waringarri Aboriginal Arts is the sense of an authentically creative and collaborative environment. Artist studios extend into landscaped gardens areas. Verandas are supported with individually painted poles and pathways of sandblasted pavers present a range of artist designs. The Dawang Gallery is a unique cultural information space presenting selected works from the Waringarri collection complimented with multi-media presentations to share the richness of Miriwoong cultural identity with both community and visitors.

There are more than 100 artists supported through the centre which also includes artists from the remote Kira Kiro Artists in Kalumburu on the northern Kimberley coast. Artists are supported by a team of local Aboriginal arts-workers.
