Are you an artist who arrived in Australia as a refugee or asylum seeker after 1 January 1990?
Artists with a refugee or asylum seeker background are invited to apply to exhibit in Home, which will be staged in November 2017 by the City of Greater Dandenong's Walker Street Gallery and Arts Centre. Home presents works that celebrate the important contribution that refugee and asylum seekers make to the cultural and social fabric of Australia.
Five artists will be selected from the applications received and invited to exhibit. Shortlisted artists will be offered $1000 financial support for the production of artworks for the exhibition.
Other professional opportunities for selected artists include tailored curatorial advice, workshops and the opportunity to participate in the City of Greater Dandenong's Artist in Residence program.
Artists are invited to create work based on any theme or artistic interest, and may be produced in any media.
Applications are due by Monday 24 July 2017.
