Do you identify as any of the following:

Exhibition Details

Does your project involve First Nations artists, communities, or subject matter?

Maximum file size: 10MB

For example: What is the curatorial rationale? What are the key themes, ideas, or subjects in your exhibition? Whose stories does the exhibition tell, or what do the artists selected to participate have in common? What is the relevance to a regional audience? Consider how your exhibition relates to the selection criteria.
For example: are new works being commissioned? Or do the works already exist. Will they be viable for touring? Are they accessible to an array of venues? Are any of the proposed works interactive, involve performance or audience participation, or require special handing, lighting, audio visual or installation requirements. Where possible, specify how many metres of wall space, square metres of floor space or both you anticipate will be needed to adequately present your exhibition.
