I am a sewer, same way as my father made paintings I make soft sculptures. My wool is like my fathers paints. All those bright colours. Sometimes I do these landscapes too like my father when I think about him sitting in the Todd River selling his paintings to all the tourists to buy us food. Sometimes I do these landscapes but I keep sewing too.
My name is Marlene Panankga Rubuntja. I was born in Alice Springs. At that time people were living in different different places, all over the place. But I grew up and went to school at Amoonguna. My father and mother were living sometimes down at the river but then my father was fighting to find a place for everyone to live in Alice Springs. He was a spokesman for his people- he even went to Canberra. Now I'm living at Larapinta, its my home, this town camp my father made.
Yarrenyty Arltere Artists is about family and community. Is it about celebrating the innovation, creativity and diversity of Yarrenyty Arltere Town Camp artists. It is about having a localised art program that is open to all Yarrenyty Arltere Town Camp community members.
It is about creating a safe and non judgemental environment in which people can work, access services, plan for the future. It is about working together to create a successful and healthy enterprise. An enterprise that is strong because of the people that work there, that is strong because of the social, emotional and cultural capital that is shared daily.
This vibrant dynamic art centre located in the heart of Alice Springs in the Larapinta Valley Town Camp is all about the people that work there daily, their families, their community, their culture. It is about a great future in which the Yarrenyty Arltere Artists are directing for themselves!
