Reconciliation Action Plan

Carclew’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) has been in development for over 12 months with a committee made up of a number of staff, Board representatives and external Aboriginal community members contributing to its creation.

Carclew is now seeking to engage a South Australian Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander artist, preferably someone under 26, to create a sculptural artwork to be used in conjunction with our RAP. 

The sculpture will be fixed permanently in Carclew’s Reconciliation Garden, in North Adelaide. The artist will also be consulted in the design and layout of the garden.

Additionally, the artwork will be featured in the design of the RAP document and its presentation both internally and externally. Alongside the permanent fixture in the Carclew grounds, the artwork will be used in whole and/or part in digital, print and promotional mediums.

The artist’s work will be credited in the RAP plan, and all other uses.

Please feel free to contact Lilla Berry at Carclew on 08 8230 1114 if you would like to discuss this opportunity further.

Selection process:

We invite all South Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists to submit a proposal. Preference will be given to artists who are aged 26 or under.

Proposal deadline is 19 February 2017

Key delivery dates:

Selection and commencement of commission: 24 February 2017

Progress Report: 17 March 2017

Note: You would be required to show the selection team where the artwork is at in development. This can be done via email or in person depending on where the artist is located in the state.

Final artwork delivery/installation: 12 April 2017


You will be paid a total of $2000 + GST for the time to produce the work including materials costs. Any travel and accommodation costs must be covered by the artist.


Due to the artwork being a permanent fixture at Carclew, the ownership of the work will be held by Carclew.
