Arts Tasmania

Tasmanian Aboriginal Arts Mentoring Scheme

This program aims to develop the capacity of young Tasmanian Aboriginal arts and cultural practitioners to undertake activities that enable them to further their careers, enrich their artistic practice and contribute to Tasmania's arts sector.

This program is open to Tasmanian Aboriginal artists who are aged 25 years and under, or in their first five years of artistic practice.

Tasmanian Aboriginal artists are encouraged to seek funds towards a mentorship with an established Tasmanian Aboriginal artist, and/or an organisation that specialises in creating opportunities for artists to share their work with audiences in Tasmania and nationally.

Applications are currently open.
