Camden Kerbside Exhibition - Celebrating Our Local Heroes

Celebrating Our Local Heroes will feature as the next Camden Kerbside Exhibition, to be on display throughout August and early September 2023.

The curated streetside exhibition will feature artworks created by the local community including photography, visual art, and poetry. The artwork will be displayed on guard rails, planter boxes, bus shelters, and bins along Argyle, Mitchell, Murray, and Oxley Streets in Camden. The exhibition will provide a colourful streetscape and opportunity for visitors and locals to admire the talent of the community.

The Celebrating Our Local Heroes theme is to acknowledge the people in our lives and throughout history that have been integral in shaping our culture, community, and us as individuals. People such as parents, leaders, Elders, historic characters, and friends are amongst those who have inspired, shared tradition and culture, and helped us to understand our ancestry, values, and heritage, leading us to grow as individuals.   

Expressions of Interest are now closed.
