In celebration of NAIDOC week, Mud Australia has partnered with artists from APY Lands Art Centre Collective on an exhibition of fine-art hand painted Mud ceramics, using a few of our more sculptural pieces from our range as a canvas for their incredible artwork.
The collaboration marks the beginning of an enduring partnership between Mud and APY to facilitate ceramic practice and industry in the remote communities of the APY lands. 80% of all sales goes directly to APY Art Centres, with 20% reinvested in not-for-profit projects such as investing in kilns and ceramic materials.
APY Art Centre Collective is a group of Indigenous owned and governed Art Centres with a united vision on strategic collaborative artistic projects. The Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands (APY Lands) are located in the far north west of South Australia. Here art centres facilitate and market the work of 500+ Indigenous artists. APY art centres are powerful places and vital to communities that struggle with complex physical and social conditions marked by intergenerational trauma, remoteness, poverty and ill health. These centres provide industry and income to members of community through their art practice.

To celebrate NAIDOC week and the launch of our partnership with APY Collective, join us for Mud Talks 02: The Power of Indigenous Art in Contemporary Australia hosted by award-winning journalist Jenny Brockie, former Insight SBS host.
Mud Talks 02 will be an opportunity to hear from leaders from APY Art Centre Collective (The Collective) on their vision, the sacred significance of art for Indigenous Australians and how it has become a powerful tool in tackling social challenges in their communities.
