We’re now seeking submissions for our 2024 exhibition and arts learning program at Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick.
This year we are excited to implement seasonal themes across the Art Program calendar findings ways to build intentional lines of connection across all aspects of the Program.
We invite you to connect with our themes and share your creative works, concepts and future imaginaries to be shared with the Hospital community; fostering opportunities that enrich our social, emotional, mental and physical wellbeing.
Season One: Story (Autumn)
It matters what stories we dream new stories with – Jessie French, Artist (Naarm, Melbourne)
Real, imagined, folktale or fable, storytelling embraces the diversity of perspectives. Season One: Story hopes to offer a rich insight into culturally, socially and geographically significant storytelling methods by looking towards the ways stories enrich our social, emotional, mental and physical wellbeing. By embracing the rich diversity of human experience, we hope to amplify the various ways we live and make sense of the world through the important stories we tell.
Season Two: Light (Winter)
Light is a feeling
Light is an energy
Light is a metaphor
Light is matter.
Delving into the many different qualities, powers and manifestations of light as a material, source and emotion, Season Three: Light contemplates the importance of elevation and illumination in the healing journey.
Season Three: Connectedness (Spring)
We may feel connected to one place or many, one community or many, one landscape or many.
Rejoicing in the places, communities, and environments we feel at ease in and with – Season Two: Connectedness invites reflection on how we build, nurture and grow our worlds both physically and metaphorically. No matter how we foster connectedness it is a space of safety where we can be our truest selves.
Season Four: Mapping (Summer)
How might we map bodies, landscapes, conversations, experiences and emotions through linear and cyclical languages; through signs and symbols and resonant networks?
Season Four: Mapping draws us into communion and collaboration with other bodies, beings, forms and formations through offering insight into how we build and chart our understandings of our internal and external worlds.
Applications for the exhibition program close on Sunday 1 October 2023.
