Dubbo Hospital Redevelopment

Dubbo Hospital Redevelopment

Art Strategy + Program Delivery

Creative Road has developed the art strategy to guide the delivery of an artworks for the Dubbo Hospital redevelopment. The project vision is to deliver a leading regional art in health program unique to Dubbo and its catchment area communities. Dubbo is a major referral hospital which sits within the largest Local Health District covering a third of the state of NSW.

Artist Fintan Magee has completed two large exterior murals for the hospital’s exterior. Inspired by his time spent with Aboriginal Elders from the region, Fintan’s artworks entitled Meeting Point and Bush Food Still Life create a positive and uplifting first impression for those arriving at the hospital.

All commissioned artworks are scheduled for completion mid-2021.

“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.”
