Hector Burton and Ray Ken working on the collaborative bonnet for Mbantua Festival 2013

Tjala Arts took part in the inaugural Mbantua Festival held in Alice Springs last week, with a fabulous display of car bonnet artworks. The car bonnets were a collaborative project created alongside Tjunga Palya, to be displayed in an outdoor exhibition at Telegraph Station for the duration of the festival. The festival was a lively event featuring a range of Indigenous stories and cross cultural collaborations told across various mediums including dance, artwork, song and even some car crashing and motor mechanics!

Several senior women from Tjala Arts travelled from Amata to attend the event. It was a fantastic weekend and the Tjala ladies were excited to take part, their voices could be heard singing and performing traditional Inma throughout the day and even attracted a new fan in Jessica Mauboy!
