The nomination process for Australia Council Awards and National Indigenous Arts Awards is now open. The Australia Council Awards recognise artists across a range of practice areas, including music, literature, emerging and experimental arts, visual arts, theatre, dance, and community arts and cultural development.
The National Indigenous Arts Awards, including the lifetime achievement ‘Red Ochre’ award and the Dreaming Award for young emerging artists, recognise excellence in both established and emerging First Nations artists. Nominations for both awards close on 3 October 2017.
