Celebrate Harmony Week 2018 with your artwork - callout for submissions.
The Office of Multicultural Interests (OMI) is making a callout to all WA CaLD artists for an artwork commission (painting) to promote and enliven Harmony Week in 2018.
The winning artwork will be applied throughout the 2018 Harmony Week campaign and will provide visual symbolism to celebrate WA's vibrant culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) communities.
Artwork brief The artwork will be a celebration of cultural diversity and respect in WA. It should be a vibrant and dynamic design and able to be applied across multiple platforms to reach a wide audience. The artwork should reflect community and diversity, however, it can also draw upon personal culture—your heritage, identity and difference. The commission is up to $4000 – depending on the career level of the artist.
Full details, including selection criteria and a submission form, are available here.
Submissions close 5.00pm, Friday 7 July 2017.
What is Harmony Week?
Harmony Week is an opportunity for all Western Australians to celebrate our vibrant multicultural State.
The week runs from 15–21 March every year and encourages everyone to experience, explore and appreciate WA's wealth of cultural, linguistic, faith and ethnic diversity.
Harmony Week is a State Government multicultural community relations initiative. More information is available at www.omi.wa.gov.au
What does 'CaLD' mean? It
includes groups and individuals who differ according to religion, race,
language or ethnicity except those whose ancestry is Anglo-Saxon or Anglo-Celtic. For ease, CaLD is commonly used as an
abbreviation for culturally and linguistically diverse.
