Ernabella Arts Experience

Delve into the creative heart of Indigenous Australia, its history and rich ancient culture on a trip to the remote Pukatja homelands to visit the colourful arts hub of Ernabella Arts during your stay at Longitude 131º.  

Established in 1948, Ernabella is an Aboriginal community in the Anangu, Pitjantjatjara, Yankunytjatjara Lands in South Australia. Ernabella Arts is the oldest, continuously running Indigenous arts centre in Australia and Longitude 131º shares with them an exclusive and mutually rewarding partnership. Today its varied group of artists is a mix of young and old, men and women who continue to evolve the centre from its first incarnation as a craft room, into a culturally strong contemporary art centre producing works in a variety of mediums drawing world-wide acclaim.

By special arrangement, Longitude 131º guests are able to visit the closed community to meet the artists and gain insight into the techniques and ancient stories which form the basis of their artworks and understand the Indigenous symbols used by the artists to depict their Tjukurpa (sacred stories of Country and lore), providing inspiration to create your own ceramic tile to take home.
