Nintirri recognises the transformative power of arts and culture in the community and aims to develop an arts landscape as distinctive as that which surrounds us. Strengthening the identity of the region through shared knowledge and promotion of cultural vitality.
The Karijini Experience
The Karijini Experience is an art and culture event delivered annually in Karijini National Park (14 – 18 April 2020) and is a major project of the Community Resource Centre. Our focus is on creating an iconic event that significantly raises the profile of the Inland Pilbara and the very special environmental and cultural assets that the region has to offer. In doing this, the event delivers a number of social, cultural and economic impacts that enhance and promote tourism development for the Inland Pilbara.
The Arts Centre Learning Hub and Gallery on Stadium Road in Tom Price has been established with the vision to create an arts learning studio for the community and a gallery space for local artists and artisans display their work.
Providing real life experiences and opportunities in order to build capacity within the community has seen Nintirri establish relationships with various organisations to facilitate workshops, work experience and mentoring sessions with successful individuals from various fields to help students and members gain a sense of themselves and their ability to achieve. Nintirri believes challenging and stimulating individuals to find their own voice and the part they can play in the ongoing development of their community is vital if we are to build on the local culture, history and heritage of the region to achieve economic diversification.
