KATE CHALLIS RAKA AWARD: BEST STAGE PLAY
Applications close: Monday 29 May 2017
This award for Indigenous creative artists has been made available through the generosity of Professor Emeritus Bernard Smith, eminent art and cultural historian.
The 2017 Kate Challis RAKA Award will be awarded to the best stage play by an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander writer. The play must have been performed between January 2012 and January 2017.
The approximately $20,000 award is offered annually and is to be applied to encourage Indigenous creative artists to undertake literary works, paintings, sculptures, craftwork, plays and to assist in advancing the recognition of Aboriginal achievements in these areas.
