About the partnership
The North East Water Aboriginal Art Prize is a local partnership between Murray Arts, Burrja Gallery, Albury Wodonga Aboriginal Health Service, North East Water, North East CMA and the Australian Gas Infrastructure Group.
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 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.
