Nation-wide Indigenous Art Competition Launched in Dubbo

Indigenous artists from across Australia are being invited to apply for one of the country’s largest art competitions, as part of Dubbo Regional Council’s (DRC’s) $13  million Destination Dubbo: International Ready project. The competition is in search of an artist to create an Indigenous artwork that can be transformed into a kinetic art piece.

Part of the ‘Destination Dubbo – International Ready’ project will be to reinvigorate the Old Dubbo Gaol Plaza to increase event capacity, provide a space for the community to spend time. It will also integrate a large-scale public artwork that aims to create an engaging, interactive space for people passing by.

Competition Overview:

This is a two-stage, open, national competition for professional artists.

The opportunity exists as a First Nations public art commission. All applicants must be Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander and Artists from Wiradjuri Country are strongly encouraged to apply.

The theme for this project is “Community Country Connection – Finding Common Ground.”

Submissions must be received by 5pm on 31 January 2021.
