Event: One Word One Day Art Auction

Banner Shaun Tan - Photographer: Emily Wiech

Sean Tan, Alison Lester and a host of other well known artists have produced a stunning and beautiful collection of original art that will be auctioned on 25 September ABC Studios, Ultimo.

The works, which can be viewed on the ASA website, are available for sale to the general public and bids can be made prior to the event or on the night.

'One Word, One Day' is an initiative run by the Australian Society of Authors in conjunction with Micador, the ABC and aims to raise funds for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. Throughout the year over 100 of Australia’s leading artists, cartoonists and illustrators gathered in each state to create works of art in response to a word they were given on the day.
