First Nations emerging artist engagement for WorkSafe Victoria

Expression of interest (EOI)

About the initiative

WorkSafe Victoria would like to invite Victoria-wide First Nations artists, as well as individual or collective First Nations artists who are living on or have connection to Wadawurrung Country, to participate in the WorkSafe Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) design. This initiative champions reconciliation, honours Indigenous culture, and visually embodies our commitment to unity.


Supporting First Nations Art

WorkSafe Victoria would like to invite Victoria-wide First Nations artists or collectives living on or with a connection to Wadawurrung Country. Their work will become a cornerstone in WorkSafe's RAP documentation and offices, reflecting our commitment to reconciliation.


Supporting WorkSafe's vision

As a leading authority in workplace safety, WorkSafe Victoria is dedicated to reducing harm and enhancing outcomes for injured workers. Our reconciliation vision unites First Nations and non-Indigenous Australians, through earned respect, trust, and understanding, fostering culturally safe workplaces.


Join the movement

Businesses and communities are pivotal in driving positive change. By spreading the word and encouraging local First Nations artists to express their interest, you play a vital role in facilitating reconciliation through art.


Submission and selection process

Artists are invited to submit their EOI, including an artist's statement, concept proposal, and budget. A panel of WorkSafe members and Wadawurrung representatives will review submissions. The selected artist will receive notification by December 5th, 2023 and will receive support throughout the production process.
