The Q Art Project is a great opportunity for young Wyndham creatives between the ages of 12 and 25
Young people with a connection to Wyndham are invited to submit a drawing, poem, short story, comic, painting or photograph that explores the expression of sexuality and gender identity.
Successful entries will receive $300 and be included in the Q Art project; LGBTQIA+ self-expression art book.
The rise of social media has brought many changes over the past few decades, one of which has increased the impact of the LGBTQ community on society’s evolving toxic understanding of beauty
The Q Art Project initiative seeks to include young people’s art expression in the local community aiming to empower and celebrate Wyndham’s young, diverse community and improve broader community awareness of gender diversity and sexuality.
Wyndham City’s Creative City portfolio holder, Cr Marcel Mahfoud, said: “The Q Art Project is a great opportunity for young Wyndham creatives between the ages of 12 and 25, whether traditional artists, illustrators, writers or inspiring fashion designers and make-up artists.
Entries can take many forms and can be as creative as you like. All creatives are encouraged to enter.”
The selection process is curated by Council officers and Headspace Werribee. Entries can be submitted online or in person at the Youth Resource Centre between 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday until the 31 May 2022..
