Darebin Council Migration Public Artwork EOI

EOIs Close: Friday 26 April 2024, 4pm


Darebin Council has identified an opportunity to acknowledge and reflect our city’s rich and diverse migration history through the creation of a new public artwork. 

Submissions are being sought from Victorian-based artists who have lived experience of migration or a close family migration story. Preference may be given to artists who live, work, study or base their creative practise in Darebin.

The artwork will be located within Preston’s Civic Precinct, near the corner of High and Gower Streets, and close to the new Intercultural Centre.

This public artwork is intended to be a place for acknowledgement of and reflection on the many diverse cultures in our community.
