First Nations Curators’ Program

Applications to Firstdraft’s First Nations Curators’ Program are open year round and assessed periodically. The program supports an emerging Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander practitioner to present an exhibition at Firstdraft. The recipient will be offered a $1,500 curatorial fee, $1,000 for artist fees, support with exhibition development and a professional mentorship with an established First Nations curator.
