The AMRC coordinates and hosts the Refugee Week Student Poster Awards in partnership with the Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre, the University of South Australia (UniSA) – School of Art, Architecture and Design, and the Department for Education and Child Development (DECD). Now in its 8th year, the project provides students from primary, secondary and tertiary institutions the opportunity through art making to raise awareness about issues affecting refugees and the valuable contributions of refugees to Australia’s social, cultural and economic development. The project also educates young people on themes such as multiculturalism, human rights and cultural diversity. An exhibition of the finalists’ posters is showcased at the Kerry Packer Civic Gallery, with participating students and their schools receiving awards and certificates at the launch of the exhibition. The exhibition is available to tour to community galleries and spaces upon request.
