WAG Initiative Receives Funding Boost
A Warrnambool Art Gallery initiative that supports the involvement of Aboriginal girls in arts and entrepreneurship has been awarded a $50,000 Victorian Government grant.
The Ngatook Collective, a project designed to engage and immerse young Aboriginal girls in First Nations’ culture whilst developing life-long and practical skills received the grant through the Office for Women.
In announcing the grant, Minister for Women Gabrielle Williams said the government was committed to promoting and achieving gender equity across Victoria.
“The Ngatook Collective reflects a real commitment to ensuring that women and girls in Victoria have access to equal resources and opportunities, and that their voices, ideas and work are equally valued,” Minister Williams said.
