2022 Art Prize
In 2022, the GSA Art Prize was held at the Art Centre Melbourne.
The 2022 theme was ‘Resilience’. You can draw inspiration from environmental resilience, personal resilience, social resilience, economic resilience…the options are limitless! We’ve all been under unprecedented restrictions and how we relate to resilience over this time is how you can express what resilience means to you. Channel that feeling into a piece, and you can share it with the world!
