Bega Valley Visual Artists – Call for Expression of Interest – NOW CLOSED

South East Arts and South East Regional Hospital (SERH) are calling for Expressions of Interest (EOI) from visual artists based in the Bega Valley Shire Council area to submit artworks be considered for a display in the Emergency Department of the regional hospital.

SERH have secured support from South East Arts (SEA) and Regional Arts NSW to digitally reproduce a small number of existing artworks to apply to one of the walls in the Emergency Department Waiting Room.

SERH are seeking 3 to 4 artists’ work for this project to enhance the visual appeal of this important space and provide a creative representation of the unique landscape of our region. It is particularly aimed at creating a welcoming environment for Aboriginal patients, so SERH are keen to receive Expressions of Interest from Indigenous artists.

In identifying artists for this project, SERH and SEA will be looking for both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal artists living in the Bega Valley Shire Council area. The project will include the following:

  • A licence agreement between the artist and SERH will be signed prior to work commencing. The licence agreement will detail the copyright framework for use of the artwork/s.
  • A once-off payment of $1000 will be made to the chosen artists for SERH to reproduce the artwork digitally for printing and application to the wall.
  • SEA/SERH will require permission for the artwork/s to be cropped as required to fit the designated space on the wall, as well as reproduce elements for promotional purposes.
  • The artworks will be photographed professionally at the expense of SEA/SERH and electronic files of the images will be provided to the artists for their own use. In responding to this call for EOIs, artists should provide an artistic statement, CV and electronic examples of no more than 5 artworks. All EOIs will be considered for the Emergency Department project and any other subsequent projects for the South East Regional Hospital.

Closing date
Expression of Interest applications must be received by Wednesday 5th November and sent to Andrew Gray at agray@southeastarts.org.au For more information contact Andrew on 0429 909 447
