The Wik & Kugu Arts and Crafts Centre is located in Aurukun, a small, remote indigenous community situated on the north west tip of the Cape York Peninsula. The gallery is an important cultural center focused on the creation of authentic and high quality indigenous sculpture and fibre art. The art center has been in Aurukun for over fifty years, providing artistic and commercial support for local artists. This artist, Roderick Yunkaporta, was interviewed while exhibiting his art at the Cairns Indigenous Art Fair.
