In 2020 The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) will celebrate its 150th anniversary. In recognition of this major milestone, the RCH and RCH Foundation will present RCH150, a year-long program to celebrate the extraordinary impact 150 years of great care has had on the children of Australia, and chart a path towards the future of paediatric healthcare.
To commemorate the 150th Anniversary, the RCH Foundation is commissioning CELEBRATE. CREATE. CONNECT: The RCH150 Aboriginal Art Project, a major artwork to be permanently installed within the hospital’s Parkville campus. The commission seeks applications of an original public artwork by an Australian First Nations artist or artist collective, with the successful applicant/s being granted $100,000 to create their work.
Submissions open 1 February 2019 and close 31 March 2019 at 11:59pm AEDT.
