With a focus on painting, the Spinifex Hill Studio provides beginner, mid-career and established Aboriginal artists with access to materials, creative and professional training and arts education to bolster their knowledge and empower their practice.

The Spinifex Hill Artists (SHA) began in 2008 after a series of community workshops organised by FORM with the support of Irene Coffin, Max George and members of the Mothers Against Drugs group. In a short time the group has blossomed into a significant indigenous Western Australian arts group. The Spinifiex Hill Studio currently welcomes Aboriginal people of any artistic ability to the studio and also offers regular workshops, professional development and marketing education to empower artists as individuals and as a collective.

In 2014 the Spinifex Hill Studios will run a dedicated professional development program for established and emerging Aboriginal artists in the region. The new centre represents a firm foundation for Hedland’s Aboriginal art community, and has potential to become a key part of the Pilbara’s cultural and tourist infrastructure. The Studios will also sharpen its focus on public art though the Land.Mark.Art program. Piloted in 2009, Land.Mark.Art is a creative professional development model that builds new skill, income and employment opportunities for Aboriginal artists. Researched, designed and delivered by FORM in partnership with Urban Arts Projects, Land.Mark.Art enables visual artists to evolve their skills to large scale, three-dimensional artworks for the public realm via a structured learning process.

  • This is a very interesting option if you are into art or are looking for a local and worthy souvenir. Paintings are painted by local aboriginal artists that portray Pilbara style on their paintings...
