New Delegated Authority program seeks First Nations artists
ATSICHS Brisbane’s new Delegated Authority program is seeking expressions of interest from any talented mob to collaborate on a unique project that aims to visually depict the transformative nature of Delegated Authority in Child Protection decision-making. This initiative marks a significant shift in our approach towards supporting families experiencing the child protection system, supporting self-determination and ensuring culturally sensitive decision-making.
About the artwork
Brief: Whether you are young or old, we invite you to submit your expression of interest (EOI) to commission a meaningful piece that tells an important and sacred story of our children, young people, families and community in relation to self-determination and child protection. Your piece will be used for ATSICHS Branding and marketing materials for our new program.
File requirements: We prefer digital (Adobe Illustrator) files; however, we will work with you in your preferred medium.
Submission: Please complete this expression of interest form.
Find it hard to read or write? Email us a video message and tell us your name, phone number, email and a bit about yourself and why you are interested in working with us on this.
We’ll then review the EOIs and make contact with shortlisted applicants to discuss further.
Criteria: Our assessment of this expression of interest is based on a range of factors – your reason you want to work on the project is first and foremost, along with assessing the style that suits the project best. Although cost is a factor, it is not the only factor.
Remuneration: The successful applicant will be paid for the artwork. Please let us know your rates when completing the expression of interest form.
Due date: Monday, 5 February 2024 for the EOI.
About Delegated Authority
ATSICHS Brisbane is set to lead the new Delegated Authority program across Brisbane and Logan, promoting self-determination and ensuring the safe care and connection of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children with their families, kin, communities, and culture.
This program marks a significant change for our children, young people and families involved with Child Safety in Queensland. It enables statutory child protection decision-making about children and families to be made by Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander leaders in the community. Our mission is to reduce the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, young people, and families in the child protection system and ultimately get our kids back home to family and community.
