Ray-Ban Wayfarer Indigenous Design Competition29.11.2013
OneSight and Ray-Ban are holding a competition to find an original and unique Indigenous artwork or design to be printed on a limited number of iconic Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses.
This competition is open to emerging Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander artists and offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to have your work represented on an iconic fashion piece.
The judges will be looking for artists to create a piece of art that is related to your culture and shows the importance of vision to your community.
“The ancient tradition of Aboriginal art and storytelling has combined with one of the great contemporary design icons to raise money to improve the lives of our people. This is what our living culture is all about,” Alison Page, Aboriginal Designer and Artist.
OneSight believes everyone should have access to world class eye care regardless of circumstance. We know that Indigenous peoples have long relied on good vision to live traditional lifestyles and to tell their stories through art, and our eyecare program is committed to enabling these traditions to continue.
The funds raised from the sale of these limited edition sunglasses will enable OneSight to continue and develop their community program further.
