Our mission is to connect our regional community to Indigenous expression and art through supporting the culture, arts and creativity of Australia’s First Nations people.
The scholarship program is designed to celebrate, sustain and grow Indigenous art and design in New South Wales. Greater Bank will provide a $10,000 scholarship to support the winner’s creative aspirations, with guidance from Murrook Cultural Centre.
The program consists of nine differing creative discipline categories that are open for applications including: fashion design, accessory design, art painting, music, dance, writing, digital art, film and photography.
The finalists, one from each field will get to share their craft and obtain sound advice from a leader in their field.
An independent panel comprising leaders in the Indigenous and artistic communities will select a finalist from each category, with the winner to be announced at an event at Murrook Cultural Centre in Port Stephens during NAIDOC Week – 2 to 9 July 2023.
Scholarship applications have now closed. Finalists in the nine creative disciplines, along with the recipient of the scholarship will be announced at the event in NAIDOC Week and on this page.
