The Aboriginal Health and Ageing Program at NeuRA is inviting Aboriginal artists in NSW to submit artwork that identifies with the themes of a new project called Sharing the Wisdom. The project acknowledges the central role that Elders have in the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal communities and the role that art plays in representing their stories and traditions. The program is particularly seeking applications from artists in one of its partner communities; Coffs Harbour, Nambucca Heads, Kempsey, Tharawal and La Perouse. Themes include Culture, Sacred Grounds, Sharing the Wisdom of our Elders, Dreamtime and Spirituality.
Applications Close 14th September 2108
Successful artworks will be incorporated into a range of Aboriginal-specific healthy ageing and health promotion resources. Selected artists will also receive payment for their work.
