One lucky attendee at this talk will be picked at random to receive a free copy of Kulinmaya! Keep listening, everybody! - a magnificent celebration of Kunmanara Williams’ life and art, written in Pitjantjatjara and English.
Mr Williams was one of 19 artists commissioned by the Memorial to produce the collaborative painting Kulatangku angakanyini manta munu Tjurkurpa (Country and Culture will be protected by spears), proudly on permanent display in the Memorial's Orientation Gallery.
