Celebrating our community through arts and culture

Developed in collaboration with our multicultural and First Nations communities, the arts strategy was a major focus in 2023, led by arts consultant City People and Health Infrastructure. The arts program will be delivered in two exciting parts, focused on celebrating the region’s First Nations people and our vibrant and multicultural community.

  • New entrance artworks: The artworks will highlight and honour our First Nations people.
  • Wall art (envirographics): This artwork will be inclusive of our multicultural community and featured across five floors within patient and public spaces.

New entrance artwork

The new hospital entrance off Goulburn Street will feature two spectacular artwork displays led by First Nations artist ZakPage, codesigned with the local Aboriginal community. The suspended sculpture will be designed to tell stories connected to place.

The large digital screen will explore film and design to create an immersive storytelling experience that speaks to traditional knowledge, ceremonies, rituals, and its impact on the Australian identity.

Wall art

We have shared some spectacular artists’ impressions of the wall art (see below). These artworks were designed in consultation with the local multicultural community and were developed by four local artists in collaboration with the Barahanos Byrne team.

We understand that art plays an important role in improving the health and well-being outcomes of patients, staff, and visitors. We look forward to sharing more exciting details about our wonderful arts program soon!
