Resilient West Torrens
The COVID-19 pandemic has provided us all with many challenges over the past year. Nationally, State-wide, and on a local level in West Torrens, we have been required to deal with changing conditions, often at very short notice, and adapt to new ways and ideas.
Subsequently, it is fitting that the theme for the 2021 West Torrens Art Prize is 'Resilient West Torrens'.
This year we're looking for works which reflect how our local community shows resilience; how we are able to recover quickly from difficulties and tough situations to continue to grow and thrive. West Torrens is not only home to our first nations people but also to another 110 other cultures, with many people moving from overseas to settle here; some who have shown incredible resilience to do so.
I am honoured to continue to be part of this year's Art Prize and look forward to viewing the many interesting works that reflect our 'Resilient West Torrens'.
