Creative Road delivered a curated program of interior and exterior artworks for the Dubbo Hospital Redevelopment and Western Cancer Care Dubbo in Central NSW. The vision was to deliver a leading regional art in health program unique to Dubbo and its catchment area communities.

A highlight of this project was overseeing a collaborative artwork by Jade Oakley, Wiradjuri/Gamilaroi elder, Auntie Di, and members of the Wiradjuri community. The delicate paper work featuring etched images of native animals, flora, and Wiradjuri symbols is designed to create a sense of calm for patients within the new Aboriginal Health Unit.

“Meeting Point is a portrait of three generations of a Wiradjuri family. This work explores the role of storytelling and dance in the sharing of cultural knowledge between generations. It also highlights the importance of family structures in cultural preservation and identity. The work was created in collaboration with Di McNaboe and Lewis Burns.”
