Aboriginal Arts Program 2015
The Minister for the Arts, the Hon. Dr Vanessa Goodwin MLC, has announced grants of $18 411 through Arts Tasmania's Aboriginal Arts Program 2015.
Feedback from the Assessment Panel
The Aboriginal Arts Assessment Committee noted there was evidence of better developed applications in this year's grant round.
The committee agreed mentor opportunities for individuals to increase their application writing skills would provide a major benefit across the community.
The committee felt in general the supporting written material was good but stressed the importance for applicants to submit high quality images to better represent their work.
