2024 Scholarship Applications: Now Closed
The Scholarship is being established in memory of Robyn Daw (1958–2022), well-respected artist, educator, writer and arts manager, by the Friend Family in partnership with Logan City Council.
For the last decade before her passing, Robyn Daw was Creative Industries Program Leader at Logan City Council. Robyn’s creative practice spanned many decades and was recognised when she was posthumously awarded a Gallery and Museum Achievement Award (GAMAA) for her lifetime achievements.
Robyn’s partner, artist Ian Friend, with son Dexter are generously donating funding over 5 years. Every dollar of the scholarship funding from the Friend Family will go directly to young local artists participating in this program.
