Lajamanu, Northern Territory, Australia
Since 1988 Lajamanu and Tracks artists have been working together. The relationship between Tracks and Lajamanu has produced performances which have become an iconic part of the place and company. The Milpirri performances (large-scale community performances held biennially) are a prime example. The ongoing relationships built over this time are trusted and heartfelt.
We created this page in 2017 to celebrate 30 years of working together. If you click on the Photos tab you will see some great portraits taken over the past 3 decades. These photos are mostly taken by Peter Eve and they show the people behind and within these collaborations.
Below you will find a full listing of all the performances and projects. Click on red text to link to the full information about each project, lots more great photos and sometimes videos.
Enjoy exploring the depths of what it means to be Australian by entering into these wonderful cultural collaborations.
