Baluk Arts is a non-profit Victorian Aboriginal arts organisation based in Mornington owned by Aboriginal artists from Frankston, the Mornington Peninsula and greater Melbourne. Baluk artists are from diverse Aboriginal backgrounds from all over Australia and artworks created reflect themes of identity in a contemporary cultural context. Through Baluk Arts, family groups and members of the stolen generation have reconnected with their culture and express their histories through strong artistic practices to support their cultural and creative well being. Baluk Arts encourages community development, youth leadership, participation and interaction, and Indigenous governance through innovative arts practice. Baluk (also spelt balluk or balug) is a local Boonwurrung word meaning group of people. The group is comprised of experienced and emerging Aboriginal artists.
Any financial support to our organisation directly benefits Aboriginal artists by providing materials, studio space and development opportunities.
