The Art Prize will be held at TAFE Space Wodonga from Monday 18 November – Friday 22 November.
About the partnership
The 2019 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, City of Wodonga, AlburyCity, Murray Arts and burraja gallery.
These organisations recognise the strong cultural connection that First Nations people have to the land and water within its region and acknowledges the traditional history, culture, stories and songlines connected to place. The Local Aboriginal Acquisitional Art Prize is an opportunity to engage with local Aboriginal artists and to showcase the strong creative community existing in our region.
