The exhibition will be presented in October 2018 by the City of Greater Dandenong’s Walker Street Gallery & Arts Centre.
HOME 2018 is proudly supported by IKEA Springvale and the exhibition presents works that celebrate the important contribution that refugee and asylum seekers make to the cultural and social fabric of Australia. Five shortlisted artists will be offered financial support of $1000 (courtesy of IKEA Springvale).
Each shortlisted artist will be provided with a negotiated opportunity for mentoring with an experienced artist or curator for the purpose of professional development.
Applications are due by Sunday 15 July
