The SA Refugee Week Youth Poster Awards Exhibition for 2020 was finally launched at the Kerry Packer Civic Gallery at The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre on Monday 2nd November 2020. Originally intended to be displayed during SA Refugee week in June, but put on hold due to restrictions on social gatherings, the exhibition features a curated selection of 88 works shortlisted from over 400 submissions from primary, high school and tertiary institutions across South Australia. The artworks celebrate the courage, resilience, strength and contributions of people of refugee background and will be on display in the gallery until Wednesday 25th November before touring throughout the following 12 months. The exhibited artworks are available to view online by following the links below.
Our thanks go to the Honourable Jing Lee MLC, Assistant Minister to the Premier, for launching the special occasion as well as to our partners The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre at UniSA and the SA Refugee Week Committee.
