East Pilbara ArtsShowcasing Aboriginal culture from the Martu people, the East Pilbara Arts Centre was officially opened today in Newman.

 
West Australia Regional Development Minister Terry Redman said the State Government’s Royalties for Regions program provided $3.5 million towards the centre, which will foster meaningful cultural exchanges between indigenous and non-indigenous communities.

 
The Minister said even before the centre had opened its doors, it had been recognised for its innovative design, engagement practices and partnerships as a finalist in last year’s WA Premier’s awards.

 
To mark the opening, the new gallery space would feature the We don’t need a map: a Martu experience of the Western Desert project, a nationally-acclaimed exhibition presenting the work of more than 30 local artists.

 
“The East Pilbara Arts Centre will help bring the colour and technique of the Martumili Artists to the wider Pilbara community,” the minister said.

 
“This facility is more than bricks and mortar. It will be transformative for Newman as a shared space that brings indigenous and non-indigenous people together to connect, learn and share cultural experiences.”
