Australia Council’s National Indigenous Arts Awards recognise young and old storytellers | dailytelegraph.com.au

Young Bellingen artist Tyrone Sheather is the latest in a long line of indigenous storytellers. His ancestors told stories through song and other traditional methods. But Sheather uses contemporary tools such as film, light and interactive technology.Sheather, 23, received $20,000 towards his next storytelling project when he was awarded one of the Australia Council’s National Indigenous Arts Awards yesterday. The Dreaming Award is for a young artist aged 18-26 to create a major body of work.“The line of my family has been of a storyteller,” Sheather says.“It seems like it’s a continued practice. My great-grandfather and the ones before him, too.”
