The Bi-ennial Award will lead to the creation of a walking sculpture park on the university campus that will be accessible to and visited by the Darwin community. It underpins the desire of the university to add cultural value to its community and to offer new ways for the community to interact with the university infrastructure as identified in the Universitys Futures Framework. Work entered for this Inaugural Award will be expected to respond to the theme of Charles Darwins contribution to Science and Society in some way. For more information visit: W: www.darwin200.org.au DVAA Proposals for Feb - June 2009 Deadline extended to 7 December The deadline for proposals has been extended for the Darwin Visual Arts Association 2009 Wood Street Gallery exhibition program.

The awards recognise and celebrate people, organisations and initiatives that have made a valuable contribution towards the advancement of multiculturalism in the Northern Territory. The criteria for these awards are deliberately broad because the advancement of multiculturalism in the Northern Territory can be achieved in many ways by individuals, organisations or through specific initiatives. The Charles See Kee Awards provide an opportunity to showcase and recognise achievements and contributions in promoting our harmonious and multicultural society.
