Waralungku Art Centre Liaison Officer Miriam Charlie was selected as runner up in the Aboriginal Arts Worker Photography Competition coordinated by Indigenous Arts Peak Body DesArt, in Alice Springs. She was competing against other artists from across the Gulf, Barkly Tablelands, Central Desert (NT and SA) and Western Australia.

Her photographs are included in an exhibition opening on 12th February at Alcaston Gallery in Melbourne.

Miriam says “She was surprised she came second. I took the photos on travelling back from the Barkly Artists camp, and around Borroloola. I’m working on continuing in photography taking photos of people and what we’re doing in the Art Centre, and on trips around our community.”

Waralungku Arts and Mobunji Aboriginal Resource Association are really proud of Miriam, who has worked at the Art Centre over 7 years. “It is great to see Miriam, who is an excellent Arts Worker in the Office having success in her creative work as well” says Madeleine the new manager at the Art Centre.

Miriam is continuing with her photography and will exhibit more work at Waralungku Arts in the future.
