Entries are now being invited for HIDDEN – Rookwood Cemetery Sculpture Walk.
Now celebrating its 10th anniversary, HIDDEN was established to encourage public use of the historic Rookwood Cemetery and enable the greater community to explore Rookwood Cemetery – the oldest, largest and most multicultural cemetery in Australia. This event is developing and last year over 5,000 people visited the event. Previous finalists include IAVA member Julie Donnelly.
The Trust is interested in exhibiting sculptures that respond to themes surrounding the Rookwood site, such as history, culture, remembrance and love. This could include grief, loss, mourning, spirituality, the environment, and different cultural beliefs around burial and memorialisation. Major award is $10,000.
Entries close 12 March.
