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 is a local Boonwurrung word meaning many.
