Art Program Exhibition Application 2023

We’re now seeking submissions for our 2023 exhibition and workshop program at Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick! 

With five Artspaces across three floors of the hospital at Randwick, the Art Program is interested in working with creatives to transform the Hospital’s environment using art to offer patients a window to an external world that is creative, educational, and inspiring. 

Our Artspaces are situated in the busy corridors of the Hospital and are transformed every three months with a rotating exhibition schedule of selling and non-selling shows. 

Exhibitions feature art from independent and emerging artists, community groups, institutions and curated group shows. View our previous exhibitions.

We’re unsure what restrictions will be in place next year to manage the spread of COVID-19. In light of this, we encourage applicants to submit concepts and ideas Art Program staff can develop and deliver with remote support from artists. 

Applications for the exhibition program close on Sunday, 2 October 2022. 

To help you prepare your proposal, we’ve compiled some guidelines and useful information about our various programs. We strongly recommend you read these before you complete your proposal form.

For more information and sales, please contact the Art Program via email art@schf.org.au or call 1800 244 537.
