The Goldfields Aboriginal Business Chamber presents the Walkanu Art Prize, open to all First Nations artists from across Australia aged 16 and over!

Walkanu is a Tjupan word meaning ‘to mark’ or ‘to paint’. This language with roots in the Northwest Goldfields, from Barwidgee Station to Leinster and beyond, has only six fluent speakers left. The prize echoes the enduring strokes of a culture rich in history and artistry.

Submit pieces for 2D, 3D, digital art and photography categories. Submission guidelines here. Electronic submissions close Sunday 26 May.

Selected works will be exhibited at the Goldfields Arts Centre, Kalgoorlie 29 June - 2 August 2024 and in Esperance at The Cannery Arts Centre 16 July - 1 August 2024.

The Walkanu Arts Prize was proudly created to celebrate NAIDOC Week, honouring the rich history, culture, and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. At the heart of Walkanu is the commitment to showcase the incredible talent and artistic diversity within First Nations communities across Australia.
