Entries now open for NAIDOC art competition

Local First Nations artists and community members are invited to enter Clarence Valley Council’s annual NAIDOC Art Competition.

The winners will be announced at the New School of Arts, South Grafton on Tuesday, July 5 during NAIDOC Week (July 3-10).

“The NAIDOC Art Competition is a great opportunity to showcase the rich culture and artistic talent here in the Clarence Valley,” Mayor Ian Tiley said.

“Clarence Valley Council is a strong supporter of celebrating our First Nations community and to recognise this we will be flying last year’s competition winner on a flag at the Council chambers.”

The national theme for NAIDOC Week 2022 is Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! However, artworks do not need to fit into the annual NAIDOC theme and can be any topic of choice.
