The Living Kaurna Cultural Centre is located at Warriparinga in the City of Marion and offers Aboriginal and environmental education programs, events and performances. The venue is also available to hire for meetings, training days, events and workshops.
Warriparinga is an important cultural heritage site where Aboriginal and early European heritage sit side by side. For the Kaurna people of the Adelaide plains, this site is a traditional ceremonial meeting place still used today. Warriparinga is an important part of the Tjilbruke Dreaming.
The Centre was built in 2001 as a result of over nine years of work between the Kaurna community and the City of Marion, with funding from a Commonwealth Centenary of Federation grant.
The Centre includes the Kaurna heritage display which has documented key dates and times in the history of the Kaurna people from pre-settlement 1804 until the Living Kaurna Cultural Centre was opened in 2002. It includes artwork by George French Angus – an artist who painted Kaurna ceremony and the early South Australia landscape.
