Djurali Youth Art Careers Workshops

Djurali is the MCA’s Youth Art Careers Workshop, aimed at Year 9–12 Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) visual arts students.
These workshops are held twice a year – one taking place over four days at the MCA and one that is presented offsite in a modified format over two days in an ATSI community.

Keith Munro, Curator of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Programs works closely with schools to develop Djurali Youth Arts Careers Workshops linking exhibitions involving Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander artists and art practices with the programmed format of Djurali. Each Djurali consists of a series of workshops over a two or four day period.

This insightful experience gives students the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge through professional and personal talks by a range of people with successful careers in the arts. They include contemporary artists, staff from the MCA, university and arts colleges. The onsite workshop also provides important benchmarks and gives students the information and expectations needed to undertake a career in the arts. Students also become familiar with the support mechanisms available to them, important practical information such as how to gain entry into university, the process involved, who to see and talk to, and resources available to them. Djurali participants also visit an Arts College to engage with ATSI staff, current students and where possible lecturers, about what assistance is available to ATSI students on campus. This includes available courses, insight into obtaining a degree and other opportunities.

The focus of both the onsite and modified offsite Djurali programs is flexible and can also include camera, painting, drawing or film based workshops, depending on artist practice and the needs of the school community. We also explore possible ways of linking the types of resources the MCA has available to promote a greater awareness of this program through the use of the web and multimedia.

  • Djurali means “to grow” in the language of the Gadigal people, the traditional owners of the land and waters the MCA is situated upon.
