KU’ARLU MANGGA is an emerging Aboriginal Art Centre located in Northampton, an historic town near Pink Lakes, between Geraldton and Kalbarri in Western Australia. The Art Centre has been trading since 2019 but opening to the public has been delayed by Covid-19 and Cyclone Seroja in 2021.
The Art Centre operates within the Northampton Old School Community Initiative Inc (NOSCII) which is a community centre for Aboriginal residents in the Northampton district. Ku’arlu Mangga means good nest, with the Art Centre actively seeking to promote opportunities for cultural expression within the community. The Centre is a registered charity, delivering annual appeals, emergency relief, family support and employment assistance. Ku’arlu Mangga artists Colleen Drage, Mauretta Drage, Marrika Gilla and Leanne Peck were selected to be part of the 2021 Revealed exhibition at Fremantle Arts Centre in Western Australia. The works these artists made for Revealed were inspired by learning on Country. Ku’arlu Mangga has textiles, paintings and prints available for sale through its website.
