The Australia Council Art Awards are the highest accolade the Australia Council can bestow and acknowledge the significant achievements and contribution an arts professional has made to the development and vibrancy of Australian arts. Mr. Stubbs began working with Yolu elders and artists in 1995. In 2001 he became coordinator of the art centre in Yirrkala. Since then it has doubled in size with a tenfold increase in annual turnover. The BukuLarngguay Centre has also developed the highly successful Mulka Project digital archive and studio. During Mr Stubbs management the Yirrkala artists have won 30 major art prizes and exhibited widely and internationally, including in the Musee du Quai Branly, France.

Now based in NSW, Ms Robson worked with Darwin Community Arts creating theatre projects across diverse Northern Territory communities involving remote Indigenous artists, youth, people with disabilities and mental illness, prisoners and former refugees. She is returning soon to the Northern Territory for the creative development of a childrens theatre interactive performance which will establish a model in community participation that can be adapted in communities both in Australia and internationally.
