Are you an established or emerging Aboriginal artist based in Victoria or Tasmania? We are currently inviting expressions of interest to work with us on a commissioned artwork as the creative expression of our journey to reconciliation

As an organisation with over a 100 year history working in communities across Victoria and Tasmania, we recognise the role we have played in the colonisation of this country and its First Nations Peoples. We are committed to moving forward and taking real steps to reconciliation.

The commissioned artwork will be a reflection and realisation of the shared journey of healing from crisis to recovery.

Expressions of interest are due by 1 August 2018 and selected artists will be invited to talk with us further about their ideas.

To express your interest we ask that you provide the following:
• Your portfolio of work (including commissions)
• Your story (a bit about yourself)
• Details of exhibitions, recognition or awards
• References or testimonials about your work
• Referees
