Seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) from Wiradjuri artists and designers for Aboriginal artwork design for the School of Rural Health (Dubbo/Orange).
The School of Rural Health (Dubbo/Orange) was established in 2001. We are part of a network of Australian rural clinical schools and our aim is to increase the number of medical professionals living and working in rural and remote Australia. One of the goals of our program is to support rural health professionals to improve health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and rural communities in general.
We provide one and two-year rural placements for medical students from the University of Sydney as part of the Doctor of Medicine degree so they can experience living and working in rural NSW. Many return to the region after they have completed their studies. In 2022 we will begin offering the entire Doctor of Medicine degree in Dubbo and hope to encourage many more rural and First Nations people into the course. The School of Rural Health (Dubbo/Orange) would like to incorporate local Aboriginal artwork into a range of printed and digital mediums that provides a visual representation of our organisation, our values and our story.
We wish to acknowledge and pay respects to the Wiradjuri people on whose land the School of Rural Health is located, and would like the successful applicant to be a descendent of the Wiradjuri nation. The successful artist will be formally recognised and must be willing to be acknowledged for the work.
The School of Rural Health will commission a suite of three artworks from the chosen artist, to be used in marketing/promotional materials, documents, signage and social media. The artwork will be printed and/or digitally reproduced. Once selected, the artist will be given a detailed brief for the project, including artwork dimensions. All designs must be authentic and the original work of the artist.
The key themes that should be considered in the design are:
Please submit one sample design and a completed application form. Your sample design should reflect the Wiradjuri nation and the key themes outlined above. You will be asked to include the story of your design and how it relates to the School of Rural Health in your application form.
The sample design should be approximately 210mm x 300mm (A4 size) to 300mm to 420mm (A3 size). Please submit as a PDF, JPEG, TIFF or EPS file. To submit a physical artwork as your sample design (such as painted canvas), please take a photo and include with your application. Please note the sample design may be created on paper or other medium or via email, however the chosen artist must submit the final artwork design to the University in high resolution digital file formats (PDF, JPEG, TIFF, EPS) suitable for reproduction.
Application forms can be found on our website School of Rural Health and submitted by the due date with a copy of your design.
