Selection Panel

The Inner North Art Prize welcomes three outstanding members of the Inner North arts community who have been selected from a range of art disciplines and arts related fields.

The selection panel will be assessing all entries to the Inner North Art Prize and assessing them against the prize’s selection criteria. Finalists will be chosen to exhibit their work in the Inner North Art Prize exhibition, and the winning entries will be selected by our panel.

We would like to take this opportunity to recognise the selection panel’s commitment to supporting and promoting the Canberran art community and are grateful for their generous support in selecting this year’s Inner North Art Prize finalists and winners.

Rachael Coghlan

Rachael Coghlan was born to judge an Inner North Arts Prize. Well sure, she was technically born in North Sydney and grew up in Belconnen but since her early twenties, she’s slowly gravitated through O’Connor, Ainslie and Reid in an ever tightening circle around the joyous heart of Canberra’s best bits. When she’s not gazing up at Mt Ainslie while sipping a hot cup of tea, Rachael’s been hard at work in the cultural sector: in Old Parliament House and the National Portrait Gallery, the National Museum of the Inner North Australia and most recently as CEO/Artistic Director of Craft ACT and their annual DESIGN Canberra festival. She’s also doing a PhD in museum studies at the Australian National University.
