Thank you to all our amazing sponsors who help make the annual Bay of Fires Youth Art Prize such an exciting event.
Artery in Hobart are respected across Tasmania for their high quality art supplies and support of local artists. They have been long term sponsors with a generous gift voucher donation.
Break O’Day Regional Arts have once again supported the youth art prize with a generous cash donation and in kind assistance by their members. We look forward to sharing some of the prize winning art at the local St Marys Market on the first weekend in July
Councillor Margaret Osbourne OAM has this year sponsored the Primary People’s Choice Award in recognition of the efforts of our younger participants.
Kris Schaffer is an Indigenous horticulturalist and educator living on Muwinina Country in (Neika, Tasmania) that has been “cared for and sustained by Aboriginal people for 150,000 years”. “Every day we touch the morning and say, ‘we are honouring our ancestors, we’re honouring those that have walked this land before us, this beautiful island that is like a sanctuary for us’.” Kris is not only attending again to Welcome us on Country at official opening but will be sponsoring a special prize to recognise work that has indigenous themes
