North East Water is calling all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists who live, work or connect to the Border/North East region to enter an artwork which responds to the 2021 theme of WATER.
Entries are now open!
This year, North East Water is partnering with the North East Catchment Management Authority (North East CMA) and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) to offer three (3) Acquisitional Art Prizes to local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists.
The Art Prize exhibition will be held at the Burraja Gallery pop-up space in Albury from Monday 18 October – Friday 29 October 2021.
About the partnership
The 2021 Local Acquisitional Art Prize will be a cross-border partnership between North East Water, North East CMA, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, Murray Arts, Burraja Gallery, City of Wodonga and AlburyCity.
These organisations recognise the strong cultural connection that First Nations people have to the land and water within the region and acknowledge the traditional history, culture, stories and songlines connected to place. The Local Aboriginal Acquisitional Art Prize is an opportunity to engage with local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists and to showcase the strong creative community existing in our region.
