EOI Richmond Village Interpretation Design
Clarence City Council is seeking Expressions of Interest from designers or artists to design 6 creative interpretation elements for the Richmond Village in the Coal River Valley in Southern Tasmania.
The designers will be responsible for the design and fabrication of interpretive elements on a key walk around the village incorporating text developed by Aboriginal consultants and Council’s history consultants. It is proposed to include QR codes linking to expanded information available on the Council’s website.
Richmond Village lies in the heart of the Coal River Valley in Southern Tasmania in the Clarence municipality. Late 2023 and early 2024 mark 200 years since the laying of the Richmond Bridge foundation stone and the proclamation of Richmond as a town respectively. The Richmond Bridge prompted development of the town, and enabled travel and transport to and from the east and south-east; it also facilitated increased settler encroachment into Aboriginal country.
Existing interpretation signage and historical information at Richmond has reached the end of its useful life, doesn’t represent contemporary interpretation best practice, fails to acknowledge the rich First Nations history of the Coal Valley, and is urgently in need of replacement. The Richmond bicentenary and associated infrastructure upgrades has provided council the opportunity to review the existing information in place and the way it is displayed.
The design brief for the project is attached including a site map.
EOIs are to include (up to) 6 examples of past work as hi-resolution images, written response to the brief (no more than one A4 page) and CV of past projects.
EOIs are to be received by COB 3 March 2023 and emailed to Tracey Cockburn: firstname.lastname@example.org
