ArtsJob | Grafton Regional Art Gallery

Grafton Regional Gallery is seeking expressions of interest for a researcher and a research assistant to conduct the next phase in the search for identity of the Aboriginal people portrayed in the photographs taken by John William Lindt in 1874 in Grafton, which are held in the Gallery’s collection.

The Lindt Research Project 2014 is a joint project between the Lindt Research Group, Grafton Regional Galleryand the University of New England. The project will continue the search for the identity of the individuals in the photographs and relate them to their descendants and develop a research database.

Expressions of interest are sought by 31 July 2014 from a historical researcher to lead the research project and from an assistant researcher. The assistant researcher is an identified Aboriginal position. The researchers, who will work with the University of New England, will be contracted for a six month period and report to the Lindt Research Group.

Contact the Grafton Regional Gallery on 6642 3177, by email gallery@clarence.nsw.gov.au or call in to the gallery at 158 Fitzroy Street Grafton for further information

The project is supported by the Clarence Valley Council and the Friends of the Gallery.
