The job: Guest Curator. Curate exhibition of work by WA Aboriginal artists for the Art Gallery of WA Covid-19 Art Stimulus Package.
In support of the WA arts community during the COVID-19 pandemic, the AGWA Board and the AGWA Foundation announced a sector-leading stimulus package of up to $1.5 million for Western Australian artists. Through funding from the AGWA Foundation, the new initiative provided support for all living West Australian artists represented in the State Art Collection and Aboriginal art centres across the State.
