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.
Aboriginal artworks are locally made and available for sale. These works include clap sticks, carved wooden artefacts, paintings, works on paper, natural jewellery, didgeridoos, handmade cards, self published books, scarves and sculpture.
All sales assist our non-profit organisation and directly benefit Aboriginal artists by providing materials, studio space and development opportunities.
