Congratulations to the ten young Indigenous creatives that have been selected to take part in the IAM: Indigenous Arts Mentorship, which matches the emerging creatives, aged between 16 and 25, with arts industry professionals.
This group of young creatives demonstrated strong passion and determination to pursue a career in their artform, which varies across music, fashion, film, dance, comedy and visual arts for four-months of mentoring, support and significant opportunities. Two of the selected young people are musicians, including Jannali Doncaster, a 17-year-old hip hop artist from the Byron region who has been performing gigs around the region and has his sights set on releasing an album and starting a record label, and Tahni Walton Holmes, a 17-year old passionate vocalist studying her HSC at Banora Point High and performing at various events including auditioning for X Factor and recently an impromptu duet with Jessica Mauboy.
IAM is funded by Arts NSW and supported by educational partners including creative media institute SAE and Southern Cross University to create solid pathways into the arts industry and deliver important outcomes for our region’s aspiring young creatives.
