Abstract: UNESAP and the Let's Hang It! exhibition is a school-based art project that began over ten years ago (by Dr Frances Alter at UNE). The key goal of the art event is to raise the profile, status and interest in the visual arts in regional and rural schools throughout New South Wales. Each year approximately 600 artworks are submitted to UNESAP from students aged 5 to 18 years of age) studying in regional and rural schools throughout NSW. Approximately 10% (60 works) are selected for the exhibition event at NERAM. These works are curated under the direction of Dr Frances Alter but selection of works for the exhibition involves a panel of experts recruited from both NERAM and UNE. Winning works in the UNESAP prize are acquired by UNE and added to the UNESAP art collection. This is managed by the UNE art curator Ms. Michelle Arens and the UNE Art Advisory Committee. Dr Alter is also a member of this committee.
