Who are we?
The Centre for Rock Art Research + Management (CRAR+M) aspires to be a leader in rock art conservation and management by research-driven advocacy for its priceless heritage values. While we focus on Australian rock art we produce research outcomes of international significance.
What is rock art?
Rock art is laden with cultural information that can reveal more about people's stories, relationships to land, social boundaries, belief systems, and interaction or communication with others.
These images are an enduring and visual historical record of people’s symbolic lives. Australia is home to more than 100,000 known rock art sites, and many more remain unrecorded.
Where do we work?
Researchers at CRAR+M are involved in projects with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in Australia as well as working with rock art in a number of international contexts.
