The City of Sydney is seeking proposals from landscape architects and creative practitioners for a permanent public artwork to the victims of AIDS and HIV-related illnesses to be integrated into the site of Green Park in Darlinghurst.
The site is located close to both St Vincent’s Hospital and a hospice where many people with HIV and AIDS received care, and has served as a place of reflection and comfort for the local community. The memorial is intended to provide a place of memory and healing for those who have lost loved ones to HIV-related illnesses.
The call-out states that the design “may take the form of an object, landscape elements, plantings or even more ephemeral elements, such as light or sound.”
The call for proposals will unfold in two stages – in the first stage, practitioners are invited to submit an expression of interest outlining their idea, in the second stage, shortlisted entrants will be paid to develop their proposals in more detail.
Submissions for the first stage of the call-out (expressions of interest) close 30 July. For more information, go here.
