One of the richest Indigenous arts prizes in the country, the WAIAA is a national award founded in 2008 to celebrate the scope, diversity and excellence of art from all corners of Indigenous Australia.

The awards acknowledge the significant and ongoing contribution Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists make to Australian art, culture and society. The fourteen artists who have been invited to participate in the awards exhibition have the opportunity to share in $65,000 in prizes.

Free talks by the artists will be held on Saturday 4 July 10.30am-3.30pm.
