Burwood Council is seeking two Sydney based Aboriginal Artists to each digitally design 6 flags each which will be installed from December 2022 in Burwood Park. The artworks will be licenced to be displayed across the 12 flags poles located in Burwood Park for a period of up to three years.
Funded by the Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) through the Parramatta Road Urban Amenity Improvement Program (PRUAIP), the program is a $198 million plan to stimulate and transform the Parramatta Road Corridor (The Corridor). The Corridor has been identified by the NSW Government as a strategic and important urban renewal area which will focus on increased housing, economic activity and social infrastructure. Public art has a key role to play in this development through establishing a sense of place and community satisfaction in The Corridor. Create NSW has supported the delivery of public art throughout The Corridor through the development of an overarching PRUAIP Public Art Framework. This project directly draws from the framework. The project also draws upon the Burwood Council Public Art Policy. This is an exciting opportunity for two artists to create a highly visible presence along Burwood Local Government Area’s (LGA) most significant park.
Please note applicants must be of Aboriginal descent, identify as being Aboriginal and accepted in the community as such to be selected for the project.
