We are seeking expressions of interest interest (EOI)(PDF, 1MB) from Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander artists and artist groups to create a series of public artworks along the soon to-be-built Fernleigh Awabakal Shared Track (FAST).

The FAST route will take in culturally and historically significant parts of Belmont, including Belmont Lagoon, and a series of public artworks
along the route will express connection to Country and the area’s cultural significance.

Nine separate artwork commissions are available through an EOI process, opening Wednesday 23 June and closing Wednesday 18 August 2021.
EOIs are welcome from emerging and established Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists and/or artist groups nationwide. Artists from Awabakal Country are strongly encouraged to apply.

The following information sessions will be available during the EOI process, register your attendance at culturalprojects@lakemac.nsw.gov.au. Please get in touch if you are unable to make the sessions listed and would like to make an alternative time to discuss the opportunity either in person, via telephone or online.
