Papulankutja Artists is an Aboriginal directed, community-based enterprise supporting Yarnangu artists in Blackstone and Mantamaru (Jameson). Since the 1980’s painting in Blackstone had been encouraged by the Women’s Centre, however with the need to protect the artists’ entitlements Papulankutja Artists was founded in 2003 and incorporated the following year. It wasn’t until 2009 that Papulankutja Artists moved out of the community hall into a purpose built art centre and gallery.
