Council is seeking Dja Dja Wurrung artists for a major public art project valued at $30,000.
Collaborations between Dja Dja Wurrung artists and other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists are also supported.
The public artwork will enhance the space at The Rex building by acknowledging the rich culture of the traditional custodians on whose Country the building is located. The artworks will create greater community and visitor awareness of the Jaara people, their culture and Dja Dja Wurrung language.
The Hepburn Hub project at The Rex will transform this iconic building into a valuable community asset. The project is a major Council initiative which will deliver a modern administration centre, library and facilities, including a community theatre and social enterprise cafe.
