National Aboriginal Art Gallery
The National Aboriginal Art Gallery is the centrepiece of our Aboriginal Arts Trail, and it will be a globally significant Australia-wide art collection from the world’s oldest continuous culture brought together under one roof.
The preferred site for the Gallery is the Anzac Hill Precinct, in Alice Springs.
It will attract thousands of visitors, create hundreds of construction jobs and create and support ongoing local jobs.
Local Apmereke artweye (Traditional Owner), Mr Benedict Stevens, would like to welcome you to Mparntwe, the home of the National Aboriginal Art Gallery.
The project is about more the just building a gallery. It will be the centrepiece of the Northern Territory’s Aboriginal Arts Trail and will display a globally significant Australia-wide art collection from the world’s oldest continuous culture brought together under one roof. It will be a “must visit” national cultural institution that every school-aged child in the nation must experience as well as thousands and thousands of international Aboriginal Art loving tourists.
Initial community feedback indicated that residents wanted more comprehensive engagement in relation to the project. Listening to this feedback, a targeted three-month community engagement program was launched, running from 6 June to 31 August 2018.
