About Young Artist Awards
The City of Kalamunda is committed to fostering the talents and artistic pursuits of young people in the region. This commitment is supported through the presentation of the Young Artist Awards.

The aim of the Young Artist Awards is to showcase and celebrate emerging young artists through a professional exhibition at the Zig Zag Gallery in Kalamunda, connecting the community with up-and-coming young creatives.

The theme of the 2018 Young Artist Awards is Illuminate - Djoondal Djoomba. This is the same theme as this year’s WA Youth Week.

This theme has a twofold meaning. Illuminate relates to space; time; the future of young people, bringing light to young people, and shining bright, and positive mental health. Djoondal Djoomba was inspired by the 'Carers of Everything' Nyoongar Dreamtime story of country, which is about the star woman and spirits coming from darkness to light.
