We are seeking submissions from Gunaikurnai Artists

GEGAC is seeking submissions from Gunaikurnai artists for an artwork to be used by our Out of Home Care team.

The artwork will feature on a “My Life Story” folder which will be given to young people in Out of Home Care or Kinship Care.

The “My Life Story” folder will stay with the young person for many years and will become a record of the positive things happening in their life, such as achievements at school, activities with friends, and other important mementos and milestones.

The winning submission will be purchased by GEGAC for $1,000 and will be used on the folder and across a range of digital platforms to promote GEGAC services and activities.
