Cultural Residency

Sharing cultural knowledge of water and Country through art.

The IWF cultural residency program aims to promote conversation and learning around Indigenous perspectives on water and Country.

Based loosely on the concept of an artist-in-residence, the cultural residency draws on the process of creating art to foster cross-cultural understanding of Indigenous peoples and cultures. The program works towards IWF's mission to celebrate and explore the ancient and contemporary expertise of First Nations Peoples in managing and protecting Australia's waterways.
