Information

Nestled within the spectacular West MacDonnell Ranges, Haasts Bluff community is located 250km west of Alice Springs. Also known as Ikuntji, Haasts Bluff community today is home to 150 residents who are mostly Luritja speakers.

Within the community you can visit the Ikuntji Art Centre (well signed from the Namatjira Drive). Ikuntji Artists was first established in 1992, initially to fulfil the role of women’s centre providing services such as catering for old people and children in the community. After first experiences made in printing T-shirts, the artists began producing acrylic paintings on linen and handmade paper, which quickly gained the attention of the Australian and international art world as well as earning the centre an impressive reputation for fine art. The focus changed from a women’s centre to an art centre in 2005 with the incorporation of the art centre as Ikuntji Artists Aboriginal Corporation.Today Ikuntji Artists are represented in many national and international galleries and institutions. Their art is famous for bold colour choice, decisive brush strokes and a long legacy of internationally renowned artists.
