YURTU | ARDLA PROJECT

This project and its associated workshops are part of an ongoing strategy by Ku Arts to support Nukunu and Adnyamathanha men in the Port Augusta region to revitalise traditional wood carving skills. Yurtu (Nukunu) and Ardla (Adnyamathanha) means 'wood' in both respective languages. Following successful carving workshops held by Ku Arts in Port Augusta in 2015 and 2016, a project has been developed centering around a visit to the South Australian Museum to respond to works held in the collection and includes a series of three wood carving workshops over 12 months culminating in an exhibition in 2019.
