Yarrenyty Arltere Artists is about family and community. Is it about celebrating the innovation, creativity and diversity of Yarrenyty Arltere Town Camp artists. It is about having a localised art program that is open to all Yarrenyty Arltere Town Camp community members. It is about creating a safe and non judgemental environment in which people can work, access services, plan for the future. It is about working together to create a successful and healthy enterprise. An enterprise that is strong because of the people that work there, that is strong because of the social, emotional and cultural capital that is shared daily.

This vibrant dynamic art centre located in the heart of Alice Springs in the Larapinta Valley Town Camp is all about the people that work there daily, their families, their community, their culture. It is about a great future in which the Yarrenyty Arltere Artists are directing for themselves!
