As with every year of the Emma Hack Art Prize, 15% of the sale of all Finalist artworks will be donated to a relevant charity to the theme chosen.

'This year I have chose 'Culture is Life' as I feel the 'Identity' of our nation lies with our indigenous culture.
Understanding their needs through education and assisting in them holding their 'Identity' is extremely important for the future of the oldest continuous culture on earth.'

Emma Hack

 


“ In Australia there is funding for our People to assimilate to become White but support to hold our Culture and identity is non existent.

Our Youth suicide rates are the highest in the world, our young people are statistically more likely to be incarcerated than graduate from secondary school.

Culture is Life supports Elders to take young Community members out to Country to learn their Culture. We build Healing Centres, Shelters and fund grass-root Healing programs.

All our work is by invitation from Community leaders.”

Peter McConchie, Culture is Life

Sponsor of Emma Hack Art Prize People's Choice Prize of $2000


Australian Fashion Labels


'Mel and Dean, owners of Australian Fashion Labels, have been collectors for a long time and are old friends. I wanted the sponsor of the People's Choice competition to have a great link within the community and be supportive of young creatives. Their business prowess and support of those around them is second to none, the perfect choice for People's Choice. More details to come about their exciting commitment to the Emma Hack Art Prize 2016.'
