Utopia Art Centre is 100% Indigenous owned and community directed. The Art Centre supports emerging and established artists. It provides a space for intergenerational learning and cultural expression. “We’re keeping our generations stronger, through knowledge on our land,” states Joyce Jones, Chairperson for the Centre.

Located 250kms northeast of Alice Springs, Utopia Art Centre works across 16 remote homelands. Utopia has a diverse history with artists gaining international recognition for batik in the 1980’s before transitioning to painting. Carving has been a key form of cultural expression for local artists and continues today. Many senior artists have travelled and exhibited across the world, including the famed Emily Kame Kngwarreye. The bold brushwork and expressive colour that set Utopia artists apart has been continued by the younger generation of children and grandchildren painting today.

Visitors welcome by appointment. CLC permit required and 4WD only access.
