Roller shutters

The revitalisation of the CBD's roller shutters is a collaboration between Red Hot Arts and Alice Springs Town Council, together with local businesses and artists.

As well as considering the artists' concepts, we also looked at the environments the designs would integrate into and looked for complements between artists and businesses. The full stories of each artist and the stories behind their work can be found on our socials @alicestreetart.

The roll-out of the refreshed roller shutters is happening throughout the whole festival! Don’t miss this unique opportunity to explore the evolving urban canvas and celebrate the spirit of community and artistry in Alice Springs.

Celebrating First Nations Artists

Six incredible artworks have been designed by Mparntwe First Nations artists, sponsored by the National Aboriginal Art Gallery.

Construction commencing in 2024, the National Aboriginal Art Gallery project will showcase and celebrate the stories of the world’s oldest continuous culture brought together right here in Central Australia, in the heart of the nation and the birthplace of contemporary First Nations art.
