MICHAEL BOIYOOL ANNING, ELISA JANE CARMICHAEL & BRIAN ROBINSON

It was an honour and a pleasure to be welcomed to the event by Co-Patrons Henrietta Fourmile Marrie, Gimuy Walubarra Yidinji Elder and His Excellency the Honourable Paul De Jersey AC, Governor of Queensland, and the Honourable Leanne Enoch, Minister for Environment and the Great Barrier Reef, Minister for Science and Minister for the Arts, Queensland Government, and Mr Tom Mosby, Chair of CIAF.

Our remarkable artists this year, Elisa Jane Carmichael, Michael Boiyool Anning and Brian Robinson, are just three of the hundreds of Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists who greatly benefit from CIAF and its government and business partners and community support. Their talents and cultural knowledge also make CIAF the premier cultural event that it is on our national stage and one of the reasons why international visitors continue to flock to our State and our country. Big thanks to Janina Harding, Vanessa Gillen and the hard-working CIAF Team for making this event happen and to the very important curators and collectors who make sure this amazing work is appreciated, interpreted and acquired.
