Congratulations to Vincent Namitjira for winning 🇦🇺’s most prestigious portrait award, the Archibald Prize. Vincent’s winning portrait of Adam Goodes, ‘Stand strong for who you are’, makes him the first Indigenous winner in the prize’s 99 year history. 🖤💛❤️

🎆 JUST ANNOUNCED: Congratulations to Vincent Namatjira on winning this year’s #ArchibaldPrize with his portrait of Adam Goodes, 'Stand strong for who you are'!

‘We share some similar stories and experiences – of disconnection from culture, language and Country, and the constant pressures of being an Aboriginal man in this country. When I was younger and growing up in the foster system in Perth, Indigenous footballers were like heroes to me. Goodesy is much more than a great footballer though, he took a strong stand against racism and said, “enough is enough”. I stand strong with you too, brother.’ - Vincent Namatjira

The portrait is on display in the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prize exhibition, opening tomorrow, Saturday 26 September at 10am. Due to popular demand, opening weekend tickets are sold out. Pre-booking is strongly recommended to avoid disappointment – plan your visit and purchase tickets now: https://bit.ly/2RzI3JW

ANCP - the Australian NGO Cooperation Program - supports hundreds of communities across Africa. It’s fantastic to see the tangible effect it has on the lives of people like Mr Dzamara - read his story below ⬇️

Mr Dzamara from Zimbabwe no longer has to rely on the rain to grow food and earn an income, thanks to a new dam that provides water year-round.

While relying on rain-fed agriculture, Mr Dzamara endured successive droughts and struggled to grow one type of crop - tomatoes. But with easy access to water for irrigation, he has also been able to grow sugar beans, while his neighbouring farmers have produced leafy vegetables, onions, and butternuts.

“Many farmers are now growing for both household consumption and selling,” said Mr Dzamara, who earned an extra $80 from selling his latest crops.

Thank you to #AustralianAid and Community Technology Development Trust/Organisation for supporting this life-changing project.
