Marlene Rubuntja is a rising star amongst the fabulous artists emerging from Yarrenyty Arltere Artists. Recently participating in the stellar collaboration between Estudio Campana, Brazil, and Yarrenyty Arltere Town Camp Artists - "Amazonica" is a key installation in pride of place at the entrance of the National Gallery of Victoria's Triennial .

Originally established in 2000 as a response to the chronic social issues faced by the town camp, Yarrenyty Arltere Town Camp Artists started as an arts training project. In 2002 the community identified the enterprise as a goal and in 2008 the enterprise was established. Now a vibrant and dynamic hub, Yarrenyty Arltere Artists is seen as an important part in rebuilding strength in the community and creating economic access for people, many of whom had not been engaged previously in the workforce. Now people are participating in regular work, there is a vehicle for social inclusiveness and the activities in the art centre have provided real and engaging pathways into the wider society.
