HIDDEN Rookwood Schools 2023 features primary and secondary class projects and group works, which respond to the context of Rookwood in some way, such as the cemetery’s contemporary relevance, diverse cultural practices, historical significance, celebration of life, personal stories, or evocative sense of place. Some of the works also engage with one or more of the HIDDEN themes: contemplation, history, culture, remembrance, diversity, love, loss, mourning, spirituality, relationships, memory, community, cycles of life and the passage of time.

HIDDEN is partnering with VADEA (Visual Arts & Design Educators Association NSW) on a special event for secondary school art teachers: VADEA HIDDEN Connect, Tues 24 Oct, 4.30-6.30pm.
