The Australia Council Young and Emerging Artists award was given to artisan and BCM in recognition of the Emerging Curator Mentorship Program created by the partnership.
Established in 2011, the Emerging Curator Mentorship Program aims to support the development of future leaders within the arts. With financial support from BCM, artisan's Gallery team is responsible for selecting an emerging curator and providing guidance throughout the mentorship. The Emerging Curator is responsible for curating three exhibitions per year within BCM's Crucible Gallery and presenting curator talks at each exhibition opening.
The program has been a fantastic initiative and we are proud to have received recognition from AbaF. Thank you to our wonderful partner BCM and the great team here at artisan, particularly our dedicated Gallery team.
We will now go on to be finalists at the national AbaF awards in Melbourne this October.
