In 2018, Open Studios became a regular addition to our Travelling Artists in Residence program, allowing artists to receive feedback and engage in critical discourses about their work without the pressure of presenting a polished exhibition.
The project valued Central/Eastern Arrernte as the first language of Mparntwe/Alice Springs. As defined by Arrernte language custodians, Apmere angkentye-kenhe (A Place For Language) made various resources and events to vitalise language knowledge transfer within Arrernte families and with a broader public.
