Throughout 2020, we’re supporting a number of diverse projects from young people and emerging practitioners. All artists have strong voices and sharp insights into contemporary practice and cultural representation, and their collective talents include literature, performance, live art, film and community practice.
The program is made possible through the generous support of the Crown Resorts Foundation and Packer Family Foundation.
