Leonora's Walkatjurra Cultural Centre is helping aspiring Aboriginal artists develop and refine their skills through the Federal Government's Work for the Dole (WfD) Community Development Program (CDP).

Over the next two weeks Aboriginal artists in Leonora, Laverton, Mulga Queen and Mt Margaret will have the opportunity to work with nationally accredited arts centre management and artist support trainer Charles Street. 

Walkatjurra Cultural Centre Director Deeva Muir said they're thrilled to have Charles work with local artists at the centre.

"He has already supported us by taking our services and arts production materials and techniques to the next level of professionalism," she said.

"In just one day, our artists have learnt art theory, layout, design and colour to take their works to an even higher level.”


Thanks to Charles' extensive experience, participants are able to receive both accredited and non-accredited training for emerging and professional artists. Charles also specialises in training for artists running a small business and industry creatives. 

His professional arts service Black Square Arts was established to support a number of Indigenous art centres in Cape York and the Torres Strait.
