• Paris Grove Worker Accommodation Village to feature Noongar public art
• Expressions of Interest invited from Noongar artists, designers and story-holders with a strong connection to Australind

Albemarle Australia is inviting Noongar artists, designers, and story-holders with a strong connection to Australind to collaborate on ideas for public artwork to feature at the Paris Grove Worker Accommodation Village now under construction.

Albemarle, Australia’s largest producer and manufacturer of lithium, is developing the village on the land of the Binjareb, Wardandi and Wilman Noongar people and is keen to incorporate local Noongar culture, knowledge and stories.

Albemarle has engaged not-for-profit group FORM building a state of creativity to run a three-day professional development workshop for up to five Noongar creative individuals and/or teams with a strong connection to the land on which Paris Grove sits.

Working with curators and facilitators on public art design concepts, the artists and artist teams will be paid for their involvement in the workshop to be held at the Bunbury Regional Art Gallery from October 31 to November 2, 2023.

Expressions of interest to participate in the workshop must be submitted before 4pm (AWST) Monday, October 2, 2023 by email to including:

• Contact details or contact details of a representative
• A short written statement (one paragraph to a maximum one page) about the individual or team, and creative practice or knowledge area
• Supporting materials such as images of previous artworks and/or designs
• A resumé if one is available.

Further information is available by calling Ashleigh Whyte at FORM on (08) 9385 2200 or email
