The community of Mimili is located within the red granite boulders of the Everard Ranges nearly 500 kilometres south-west of Alice Springs. The Art Centre, Mimili Maku Arts takes its name from the Maku or witchetty grub found in the roots of the witchetty bush (Acacia Kempeana).

Mimili Maku Arts is a happy place, where men and women, young and old, paint and share Tjukurpa (traditional law and culture) and contemporary stories. Intergenerational transition of these stories to young people is a critical means of keeping culture alive and strong. The Art Centre plays an important role in the community, providing cultural and social benefits in addition to economic returns. Mimili Maku Arts is 100% Aboriginal owned and governed and all proceeds are returned to the artists and their organisation. Mimili Maku Arts is open 9am - 5pm Monday to Friday. Visitors only by appointment
