Dubbo Regional Council, as part of the ‘Destination Dubbo – International Ready’ tourism product development project will reinvigorate the Old Dubbo Gaol Plaza to increase event capacity, provide a space for the community to spend time as well as integrate a large-scale public artwork, acknowledging the location as pivotal to community connectivity throughout Dubbo's history. One block from the Macquarie River and in the centre of the main street, the artwork will acknowledge the importance of the river as an integral communication tool to First Nations Peoples from the beginning of time, modern history has added the post office, court house, telephone and data exchange as crucial to community connectivity and communication.
This Public Workshop will discuss the scope of the project, the background and goal for the project, the opportunity to speak with UAP (Fabricators) to get a better understanding of the support that they will offer and some of the technical information about what is possible on the site and what curatorial support they will offer to turn ideas into reality.
The workshop will also go over the selection panel and what will be considered in reviewing applications and what is hoped the project will achieve.
