First Nations Artist - Expression of Interest

  • 27 Feb 2023

First Nations Artist – Expression of Interest

Located on Dharawal Country, Figtree Hill is being designed with considerations to honour the region’s rich First Nations cultural heritage and stories. As part of this journey, Lendlease is looking for a First Nations artist to create a unique artwork representing the project and the community.

Drawing on the site’s strong cultural narratives, with inspiration from the beauty of Country, the artwork should inspire visitors to learn more about local Dharawal stories.

To bring this project to life we are working with Deadly Ed, leaders in First Nations art and education, to manage the Expressions of Interest and selection process.

As part of this project, the artist must be open to feedback from local Dharawal elders and community leaders. One of the most important groups involved in the co-creation of the masterplan project at Figtree Hill has been the First Nations community.

Lendlease’s Elevate RAP will take a leading role in lifting the industry standard of placemaking by incorporating the self-determination principles and voices of First Nations people. At Figtree Hill, we have developed an overarching Connecting with Country approach to placemaking, focused on shared prosperity, caring for Country, and working closely with the community on the protection and celebration of Dharawal culture.
