HIDDEN Rookwood Students

Rookwood General Cemetery is pleased to invite students from secondary and tertiary institutions or youth groups, either as individuals or as a group, to apply for this new program. The artworks will be selected and showcased alongside sculptures and installations within the HIDDEN Rookwood Sculptures exhibition. We are interested in works that respond to the themes of history, culture, remembrance, love, cycles of life and the passage of time. We are open to a wide range of artistic approaches, materials and forms. There is the possibility of involving kinetic elements, performance and participatory engagements. We are looking for a broad span of works ranging from the celebratory, big, bright and colourful – to the contemplative, intimate and thought provoking. Students may propose works yet to be made or existing works that relate to the exhibition themes.

There is no specific age limit.

Prize: $1000 art materials voucher
