Art has always had the power to make a difference – to change the way we look at things, the way we feel about things and indeed, the things we consider at all. And historically, art has played a central role in defining society and bringing about positive change.
In recognition of this, we are introducing the ASIX Social Changemakers Art Prize, whereby non-established artists with a passion for social changemaking are invited to submit artworks to a special exhibition for the chance to win $3,000.
The exhibition will be organised by the Australian Social Innovation eXchange (ASIX) as part of its Australian Social Changemakers’ Festival in April 2012 and held at Weave Arts Centre in the CarriageWorks precinct.
The work must be connected to the creative statement and revolve around the notion of play. For more details download the Creative statement and brief.
