We have once again been impressed with the calibre of the entries received for this award. This concept has been inspired by a previous opportunity Mei had to tour mining sites in South Australia.
Mei plans to visit mine sites and interview miners to create her artwork. Schools winner Victor Harbor is putting the finishing touches on their copper signage which will be displayed on the front wall of their school.
The OZ Minerals Award is similar to a commission. South Australian artists are given the opportunity to submit ideas and apply for assistance in obtaining copper and production costs.
The mine has a preferential local employment policy with approximately 80 percent of its work force from South Australia. Who We Are.
