2020 Koorie Youth Summit artwork
We’re inviting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people aged 14-28 years old living in Victoria to submit an artwork for the 2020 Koorie Youth Summit. Each year, we invite artists to submit artworks that captures the theme.
The selected artwork will feature as the 2020 Koorie Youth Summit logo.
The 2020 Summit theme is, Connect, Heal, Grow: Determining our future.
Our connection, healing and growth as Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander young people is symbolic of our culture, our people and our history. The 2020 Summit theme illustrates the collective wisdom of our past and present, as it supports us in determining our future.
The Summit is a space for us to gather from around the state to connect with each other, discuss what is important to us, be proud, learn, and share.
When we connect and gather as young people, we create space and energy to empower and inspire. When we heal, we understand and recognise the healing and strength within ourselves and our communities. When we grow, we are continuing in the footsteps of our ancestors, inspired by our people’s journeys and creating the footsteps for those that come after us.
The artwork will be selected by our Executive of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people and Koorie Youth Summit organising group and will appear on promotional materials for both Koorie Youth Summit and Koorie Youth Council, (including web, print and media). We may use the artwork in full or a segment of the image when appropriate and it may be used by a third party. The selected artist will be paid for their artwork and provided an artist agreement.
Applications close Monday 16 December midnight.
