Awards

Celebrating individuality, resilience and creativity

Wow, we have been absolutely blown away by the amount of talent on show at our inaugural online art show, ADAPT 2020. 

This year, there were over 50 entries submitted, from a diverse breadth of media, including: graphite and pencil drawings, textiles, photography, painting, woodwork and videography.

Well done to everyone who contributed! 

A big thank you to the teachers and coaches who encouraged their learners and students to participate.  

“Art is pretty important in the sense that it does represent the human creativity and imagination of what we think, determine and provide at any given time. The wonderful thing about art is it invades our lives in all sorts of different ways that we don’t even realise. Whether it be the design of a car that we might be in, or sculptures, paintings, or poetry. The great thing about art is that it invokes something in all of us.”

Rodney Wangman, CEO

Congratulations to everyone who participated in the Adapt Online Art Show.  In what has been a strange year of distant and remote learning, creating and making artworks was the catalyst that brought us all together.   We are looking forward to hosting something similar in the future. Watch this space in 2021!
