The Ownership Project has partnered with Multicultural Arts Victoria to offer a twelve week residency for three young emerging artists from East African and Iranian communities.  We are seeking your help to fully realise this wonderful project.

The three young artists are working with industry printmaking tutors on a series of new artworks that will culminate in an exhibition at The Ownership Project, titled Etch This, as part of the Emerge in Yarra Festival from 14 – 20 June 2015.

The overall cost of the residency and associated exhibition is $5,000.  This includes industry printmaking tutors, art materials, studio and gallery space, marketing and administration costs. The Ownership Project is seeking the final $2,000 to realise the project outcomes.
