Exhibit Analysis: 

Idealistic men and women, including writers and artists, travelled to the Pilbara from other parts of Australia, to be a part of this exciting social experiment. They included the artist Sam Fullbrook who built himself a studio at the Group’s tanto-Columbite camp at the Pilgangoora Bore. At a time when Aboriginal administrations across Australia were planning policy for the incorporation of Aboriginal people into mainstream Australian society, these men and women were, to some extent at least, being incorporated into an Aboriginal social organisation.
