THE NAMATJIRA PROJECT - Water Colour v Desert Colour

26th Oct 2016

The Namatjira Project is an Australian community cultural development project, launched in 2009, conducted by arts and social change company Big hART. It is based in the Aboriginal communities of Hermannsburg and Alice Springs in the Northern Territory of Australia. Its focus is the life and work of the late Albert Namatjira, the famous Indigenous watercolour landscape artist. The project undertakes community work and has developed an award-winning touring theatre show, Namatjira, which depicts "the commercial appropriation of the Aboriginal experience".

The project’s Sophia Marinos talks with CAAMA’s Damien Williams regarding the ongoing community and experiential work of the project.
