Yarta Purtli


8th June – 15th July 2023

The Malka Aboriginal Art Prize was initiated by the late Mr Marvin McKenzie Senior, whose vision was to have an Aboriginal art show which ensured the Aboriginal community would have a space to showcase their work.

‘Malka’ is a word used by several Aboriginal language groups within the Port Augusta region, meaning mark or painting.

In 2023 it will be the 14th year the Aboriginal Art Prize has been held.
