As part of the Woolgoolga to Ballina (W2B) Pacific Highway upgrade project, Transport for NSW has engaged Balarinji to work with key Aboriginal stakeholders including local Aboriginal Elders, Aboriginal knowledge holders and Aboriginal artists to develop concept artwork for the W2B Aboriginal Art Trail.
Aboriginal artists and creative thinkers with a connection to the local Gumbaynggirr, Yaegl and Bundjalung communities.
Artists would need to commit to three workshops in April, June and July this year. These workshops will be held in various locations between Woolgoolga and Ballina.
We are looking for expressions of interest from locally connected Aboriginal artists who would like to be involved in developing artwork that depicts stories from Gumbaynggirr, Yaegl and Bundjalung narratives.
Spaces are limited. We are looking to appoint a total of ten locally connected Aboriginal artists. Please send a brief summary of information about your work, yourself and your connection to Gumbaynggirr, Yaegl or Bundjalung Country to email@example.com or contact us on 02 9908 2416. Artists selected will be paid for their time and the artwork they develop.
Expressions of interest close, Friday 27 March 2020
