This particular artist camp was conceived by Colin McDonald QC, who has invited a group of Indonesian artists to interpret the natural landscapes and cultures of the Northern Territory. In managing the project, 24HR Art facilitated journeys through the bush to meet with Indigenous communities at Jutpurra, formally Gregory National Park, Kakadu and Western Arnhem Land region.
