Community, social and public housing tenants have a new opportunity to showcase their creative talents, thanks to an art award launched by the South Australian community housing sector.

AnglicareSA has partnered with Access 2 Place Housing, Community Housing Ltd, Junction, Westside Housing, Housing Choices South Australia and Unity Housing to provide a wonderful opportunity to people living in AnglicareSA’s more than 2100 community housing properties.

The artistic talents and passion of approximately 150 people across South Australia were celebrated at the inaugural Community Housing Art Awards South Australia (CHARTS).

A variety of unique and visually stunning art was on display, and categories included framed and hanging pictures, 3D sculptures, photography – both digital and graphic, poetry and literature.

South Australian Premier Steven Marshall and the Right Honourable Lord Mayor of Adelaide, Sandy Verschoor were in attendance. The award finalists included AnglicareSA tenants Edward, Leonard and Rex, with Rex taking home the major prize.

A special thank you to the Harvey Norman Commercial Division and Electrolux, for the donation of $500 in cash prizes to the award winners. AnglicareSA also sends gratitude to the Community Housing Council of South Australia for their significant support for the inaugural event.
