71 Dr James Bennett with Candy Bennett, Supporter of Aboriginal Art Wendy Pech, MAGNT Foundation Chair, with Marilyn and Jeff Pinkerton, Supporters of Aboriginal Art Support With the easing of many COVID-19 restrictions during the 20212022 year, we were able to return to engaging with our donor community through in-person activities. The Program Launch in January introduced our Whats On guide with a refreshed public program involving our curators, researchers and artistsin-residence. Exclusive events were offered to our donor community with behind-the-scenes visits to our Telstra NATSIAA exhibition, the Pygmy Blue Whale installation and the Walking through a Songline touring exhibition. Telstra and MAGNT negotiated a three-year partnership renewal, which not only sees Telstra remain the naming-rights partner for NATSIAA, but also delivers a generous increase in the prize money. Telstra NATSIAA, the longest-running and most prestigious Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art award, is now the richest art prize in the country. The major prize has increased from $50,000 to $100,000 and the other MAGNT warmly thanks our current supporters for their generosity and advocacy. Through the ongoing support of our donor community, MAGNT maintains and builds its world-class collection and continues to share important Territory stories with global audiences.
