Lands in the remote north-west of South Australia: Ernabella Arts, Iwantja Arts, Kaltjiti Arts, Mimilu Maku, Niniku Arts, Tjala Arts, and Tjungu Palya Artists. These art centres facilitate and market the work of over 400 Anangu artists and are home to some of the most renowned and collectable Indigenous artists in the country, as well as a host of young and emerging artists. The APY Art Centre Collective is a group of 11 Anangu-owned and governed organisations working with a united vision and voice for strategic business initiatives and collaborative artistic projects celebrating the APY region.

Julie Yatjitja has painted at the Iwantja Art Centre for over ten years. Her canvases often depict country that is special to her in a simplistic and confident style. Other works have more focused attention to detailed dotting and mark making, colourfully portraying water holes, animals and the Seven Sisters Tjukurpa (Dreaming).
