New Media Centre

Films, photography, documentaries, murals and music have been produced through Warlayirti Artist’s New Media Centre. 

Warlayiriti Artists are currently working with Italian artist Giorgia Severi on a project for the Venice Biennale called "Country" and have recently collaborated with Melbourne Grafitti artists Luke and Leon and the young people of Balgo on a mural project for the new Community Centre.

Since 2009 the New Media Centre has been home to the Motika Project. The Motika Project is an arts-based project produced by Warlayirti Artists (Balgo) with the communities of Balgo, Mulan and Billiluna.  This 3  year project uses community members lived experiences of the ‘motika’ (motor car) as a ‘vehicle’  to explore a range of social, cultural, economic and justice-based issues experienced by indigenous Australian living on remote communities. The project engaged young artists in workshops and exhibitions in photography, advertising and painting and ultimately a new film work about this all- important part of contemporary indigenous culture.
