Stories from Julalikari
PRESENTLY, there is a number of women creating art at the new Gallery

They are working on small canvasses and other creative items like book

The MAPU yard, on the corner of Udall and Brown Street in Tennant Creek
is again becoming a centre for CDP training activities.
Along with the mechanics workshop, a range of new activities are
underway including furniture making, a stores and warehouse and a men’s
Leading the men’s painting activity is Rupert Betheras, Contempory Artist
and former footballer for Collingwood.
Rupert has been working with local men in the Barkly for some time and is
now working alongside local artists at Julalikari’s MAPU yard.
His art practice is exploratory and he works with local men to develop their
ideas and painting techniques.
The art group also explores new mediums to paint on. Not being
constrained to just canvas – sometimes using what is at hand to paint as
alternatives to canvas like recycled wood, blackboards or remnants from the
environment around them.
Julalikari is one of Australia’s largest Aboriginal Corporations, bringing a range of community
services and businesses to the Barkly Region. Julalikari is owned and controlled by the Aboriginal people of the Barkly.
