Encounters Indigenous Cultural Workers Scholarships

The scholarships are a legacy of the Encounters exhibition and were developed after extensive community consultation. These intensive three-month internships are designed to meet the needs of recipients and their community-based work. 

Interns work with mentors, cultural leaders and custodians, expanding their vision and knowledge and building networks at major cultural institutions and universities in Australia and the United Kingdom.
