Yulendj Arts Exhibition Wrap Up and Thank You

Thank you to everyone who came along to our 2017 Yulendj Art Exhibition held late May/early June. We are indebted to you for your show of support and goodwill extended to the School and to our Indigenous Scholarship Program (ISP).

We enjoyed a number of visitors at this year’s Exhibition with numbers well surpassing that of our previous 2015 Exhibition and more than 130 guests attending our opening. The Exhibition gained strength across the four open days with visitors from all corners of our campus and community, including students, parents, grandmothers and Old Girls.

Over the week, we managed to sell 49 items of the 85 on offer, a great result and way ahead of the 9 sold at our 2015 Exhibition. Thank you to all the lovely supporters who invested in some of our beautiful pieces. Also thank you to our four participating galleries for allowing us to offer such fabulous artwork from both established and emerging artists. I’m delighted to say that all 17 Silent Auction lots attracted great bids that made a significant difference to our financial result. Thank you to our winning bidders and Auction donors as well.

No event can be held without the support of so many kind and generous givers. We are grateful to the long list of sponsors and supporters as listed below, capably led by the committed teams at Mercedes-Benz Toorak and Coco Republic. If leadership is based on what you do and what you do for others, then these two companies lead well. Please take the time to return the support extended to us by MBT and Coco Republic and all the amazing companies and individuals involved. They will appreciate knowing our partnership is for mutual benefit.

I invite you to now review the Yulendj video by clicking here and then ask you to consider making a donation to our Indigenous Scholarship Program this year. More information about the Indigenous Scholarship Program can be found here and we thank you in advance for any support you are able to extend. We now trust that the ongoing shared commitment of our School community ensures we can make a positive change to Indigenous education. With a sound educational background, all of which embraces a life-long learning philosophy, our current Indigenous girls will develop into confident and courageous young women of the future.

Our Yulendj Art Exhibition will again be held in 2019; we look forward to captivating your interest again!
