SALA Education partnership to strengthen in 2019
2 Jan 2019
After joining with SALA as Education Partner in 2018, Credit Union SA is set to continue by supporting the SALA school exhibition and awards program.
The awards were a new addition to the annual SALA Festival and aim to encourage South Australian schools to participate and engage with visual arts as part of the festival.
24 schools entered the 2018 awards, with exhibitions as far north as Pukatja Kungkas, Ernabella Community.
Joint winners for the 2018 Primary Schools category were St Brigid’s School and Woodside Primary. The Secondary School Category was won by the South Coast collective of schools including Victor Harbor High School, Encounter Lutheran College and Investigator College.
Winners and runners-up for each category shared in $2,500 and $1,000 cash prizes for their schools.
These winning schools will also work with the team at Dream BIG Festival to remount an adaptation of their exhibition at the Adelaide Festival Centre during the event from 22 May until 1 June 2019.
Entry for the 2019 Credit Union School Awards will be open from early 2019, with all schools registered for SALA Festival 2019 automatically qualifying for the awards.
Details will be made available on the SALA Festival website from January 2019.
