Heartlands Refugee Art Prize

The Heartlands Refugee Art Prize allows us to understand the dreams, memories and aspirations that make up the refugee experience. It represents works by professional, amateur and emerging artists and recognises the important contribution that refugees make to the cultural and social fabric of Victoria.

The Prize is a collaboration between AMES Australia and Multicultural Arts Victoria, in partnership with Parks Victoria, Victorian Multicultural Commission and VicHealth.
