The Windmill Trustees invite you to join us and artist Dale Collier, who has been announced as the recipient of 22nd annual scholarship for regional NSW artists.

Collier is currently based in Newcastle, one of Australia's largest port cities. He works across the disciplines of sound, video, performance and installation while re-examining the 21st Century roles of the First Nations artist, activist and ally. Collier's work utilises intertextuality to challenge and interrogate postcolonial frameworks, contemporary falsehoods, nationalistic propaganda and northern European convict/settler tradition. Often manifesting as institutional critique, his site-specific projects traverse live spaces and places of key cultural, geo-political and environmental concern. 

Collier will use the $10,000 scholarship to create and present new experimental artwork in reciprocity and exchange within sites of key bio-spherical and environmental significance between Broken Hill and Newcastle for the 2020 Broken Hill Art Gallery exhibitions program and 2020 Broken Heel Festival. 

Established in 1997 in memory of the artist Penny Meagher, the emphasis of the Windmill Trust Scholarship is to support professional artists from regional NSW to develop and or present their work. This award is administered by NAVA.
