Mangkaja Arts Resource Agency is an Indigenous-owned and governed Art Centre in Fitzroy Crossing in the Western Kimberley region of Western Australia. Established more than 30 years ago, Mangkaja is home to five language groups of the region from the river Country: Bunuba, Gooniyandi and Nyikina, to the Great Sandy Desert: Walmajarri and Wangkajunga.

The combination of artists from these vast areas of Country creates a vibrant and exciting array of work, stories and cultural connections. Mangkaja gives artists the opportunity to work alongside their family and community members, supporting cultural maintenance and the development of artistic skills together.

Mangkaja artists are renowned for their uninhibited style, innovation in new mediums and lively use of colour, painting images of Country that share stories of culture and identity. Their works are exhibited and collected in national and international galleries, museums and private collections.
