Glenorchy City Council is seeking to commission an artist to create a unique artwork for use on the cover of their Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan. Through this commission, alongside council’s reconciliation journey, we seek to celebrate Aboriginal culture with the broader community and give a strong visual identity to the beginning of council’s reconciliation journey.
