Council has invested in the upgrade of the signage along the Bay Run. An important part of this upgrade is that the public signage not only speaks to the local history and significant natural ecology but that it complements the beauty of the landscape.
We are seeking to commission an Indigineous artist for this work. The art is to be innovative, vibrant, have integrity, and be contemporary, culturally relevant and of the highest quality. It is to connect with the aboriginal cultural heritage, the river and create a meaningful sense of place. The art work themes should address the following aboriginal themes:
- Food gathering activities
- Fishing craft
- Local native plants and animals
- The river
- Managing the land
Political artworks will not be accepted.
Project Budget: $8,000
