The Indigenous Storytellers Scholarship
Nurturing art, creativity and culture
The Indigenous Storytellers Scholarship (or “Djuyalgal Scholarship” in the traditional Gathung language of the Worimi People) is a collaboration between Façon and Greater Bank. Our mission is to connect our regional community to Indigenous expression and art through supporting the culture, arts and creativity of Australia’s First Nations people.
The scholarship program is designed to celebrate, sustain and grow Indigenous art and design in New South Wales. Greater Bank will provide a $10,000 scholarship to support the winner’s creative aspirations, with guidance from Murrook Cultural Centre.
An event will take place to announce the winner on 6th July during NAIDOC Week 2023 and a special edition Façon Magazine will be created that will profile the finalists from each category.
