The Indigenous Designer Award recognises and celebrates the important contribution that Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander designers make to Australian Design across the spectrum of design disciplines and practice. This award welcomes nominations of Indigenous individuals as well as projects where at least one member of the design team identifies as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander.
The 2021 Indigenous Designer Award, is presented to Kevin ‘Uncle Gavi’ Duncan with Turf Design Studio for their project Gosford Leagues Club Park. This project is fundamentally about connection; to environment; to ‘country’ and to community – making a place for all. As the premier new public space for Gosford, the diversity of spaces and their adaptability for a range of uses will provide for everything from the everyday stroll to the annual event.
