SHARE Youth Arts Exhibition

The SHARE Youth Arts Exhibition is an annual event run by Adelaide Hills Youth Leadership. Typically participants' works would be displayed at Fabrik Arts + Heritage in Lobethal however, with social distancing in place, we have adapted this popular event to be 100% online in 2020.

SHARE 2020 will be launched to coincide with NAIDOC Week, and will focus on their theme of "Always Was, Always Will Be". Participants will be asked to reflect on this theme and what it means for them, and incorporate these thoughts into their artwork.

Who can enter?
Artists aged 15 to 25 years who live, work, play, or have another strong connection to the Adelaide Hills. Artists do not have to identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander to participate.

What artwork can be included?
Keeping in mind the online nature of the 2020 exhibition, artists can submit works including:

  • Digital illustration
  • Video
  • Photography
  • Traditional illustration or painting (photographed)
  • Mixed media (photographed)
