Burrinja looks forward to welcoming artists from Arlpwe Arts in Ali Curung, Northern Territory, back to Burrinja. For the third time after 2013 and 2014, the artists will visit Burrinja to exhibit new paintings, pottery and their trademark life-size dog sculptures. Dog Dreaming is central to Kaiditch country where ancestral dogs traveled in ancient times.

Accompanied by arts workers Judith and Ian Grieve, members of the four language groups who reside in Ali Curung (Warlpiri, Warumungu, Kaiditch and Alyawarra) will visit Burrinja for a week presenting painting workshops and demonstrations of traditional objects to schools and visitors to Burrinja.
