Yalingwa is a major new visual arts initiative for First Nations artists and curators to support the development of outstanding contemporary Indigenous art and curatorial practice. Yalingwa has been developed in partnership between the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria, the ACCA - Australian Centre for Contemporary Art and TarraWarra Museum of Art, and will be overseen by an Indigenous Advisory Group that includes elders, curators and key members of the national Indigenous arts community.
