“In 2019, AGWA launches AGWA Pulse, a platform designed to better engage and attract a young audience. It is time to create a meaningful platform that connects with these teens and young adults in their world. The art of Year 12 Perspectives has always reflected their views, their concerns and passions. It is a way of seeing the world through the eyes of our talented youth. AGWA Pulse takes this premise and creates a programming stream that is for young people, and by young people.” This year’s exhibition features 46 works by 2018 Year 12 Visual Arts graduates from 31 schools across Western Australia, including Mandurah Baptist College, Geraldton Senior College and School of Isolated and Distance Education, through to metro schools Applecross Senior High School, Canning Vale College, Perth Modern School and Wanneroo Secondary College. Visitors to this year’s exhibition are encouraged to vote for their favourite work in the Act-Belong-Commit People’s Choice Award. Voting is open from 10am, Saturday 6 April until 5pm, Sunday 14 July and the winner will be announced on Wednesday 17 July 2019. The student artist whose work receives the most votes will receive an AGWA membership and $100 Gallery Shop voucher. The school, the artist attended will receive a workshop and tour of the next Culture Juice exhibition Billions of people are wearing t-shirts right now.
