Expressions of Interest close: Friday 16 December 2016

The $20,000 Dreaming Award recognises an inspirational young Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander artist aged 18-26 years and supports the opportunity for them to create a major body of work through mentoring and partnerships, either nationally or internationally.

The successful candidate is mentored in their chosen discipline
(music, dance, theatre, literature, visual arts, new media, and
cultural vibrancy) by another established professional artist or by
an arts institution nominated by the artist. In addition, the
Australia Council will promote the achievements of the recipient to
inspire other young artists.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Strategy Arts Panel
will base their selection on the following considerations:

-A project idea/concept

-Artistic merit of the project

-Cultural integrity of the project

-Professional development benefits of the project for the
individual and the art form involved

-Experience of the artists and/or arts workers involved, with
skills appropriate to the project.
