Isabelle Craven

Student and creator

2023 NT Young Australian of the Year Nominee

Isabelle Craven draws on her background as a young person of mixed heritage to create art that resonates with her community.

The Darwin local is the winner of the Road Safety Awareness Art Competition, as well as People’s Choice Winner for the Exit Art exhibition by Year 12 students at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory.

Isabelle’s art speaks for those whose voices are not often heard.

She was named an ambassador for 2022 NT Youth Week, an annual event at which young Territorians can express ideas, raise concerns and enjoy drug- and alcohol-free events. As MC, she shared her own personal experience of abuse.

Isabelle is also a member of the City of Palmerston’s Youth Media Team and is involved in the LAUNCHmedia training program through the City of Darwin.
