Indigenous Design Opportunity

Indigenous Design Opportunity

Applications are being sought from Indigenous artists who are from or have a strong connection to the Northern Rivers or Mid North Coast regions interested in developing design assets that will be used to promote Social Futures services to the Indigenous community across the region.

Social Futures is a social justice organisation based in Northern NSW. Arts Northern Rivers is working with Social Futures to engage an Indigenous artist to develop design assets that will be used to promote services to the Indigenous community across the region. These services include: housing, health and disability support. The design assets will feature graphic elements that will engage members of the Indigenous community from a wide geographic area – including the Northern Rivers and mid North Coast regions. It is important that the final design assets are inclusive and mindful of this broad reach. We are seeking expressions of interest from Indigenous artists for the project.

If you are interested please fill in this form and supply 4 examples of your work.

  • the information submitted will be used to create a shortlist of four artists
  • Shortlisted artists will develop a concept for the design assets based on a full brief provided
