2024 Advance Care Yarning Art Competition

21 March 2024

In support of National Advance Care Planning Week and National Close the Gap Day, the PallConsult First Nations Palliative Care Project is excited to launch the Advance Care Yarning Art Competition.

First Nations Queenslanders are invited to enter with an original artwork that reflects the theme ‘My Care, My Choice, My Belonging’.

Kat Hooper, First Nations Palliative Care Nurse Practitioner for PallConsult says that the Advance Care Yarning Art Competition provides an opportunity for First Nations people to yarn about their future health care choices.

“The theme ‘My Care, My Choice, My Belonging’ highlights the significance of self-determination to tell your family, community, and health care staff about what future health care you would like, and when and where you would like to receive care if you become unwell in the future. This can help to connect family, Culture, Community, Country, and spiritual wellbeing and positively effect a person’s health journey,” Kat says.

“This art competition is designed to celebrate the value of First Nations art and culture and how it strengthens Indigenous Knowledge.

“We’re excited to see the artwork that First Nations Queenslanders submit to this competition and how they interpret the theme through their culture and personal experiences.”

  • Art competition entries close on Sunday, 5 May 2024.
  • Entry is free and a range of cash prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.
  • T&Cs and more information available here.
