Advance Diversity Services has created an oversized egg – more than 1.2 metres high! – to be displayed in Hurstville during the second half of April.

The egg is part of an Easter-themed, community-based project through which 12 large-scale eggs have been custom-designed by core community groups and cultural organisations essential to the fabric of the Georges River area.

An artist from Pier Productions worked with each group’s 2-dimensional design – translating and painting it onto a 3-dimensional egg, bringing the design to life in a striking installation.

Six of the oversized eggs are located in Westfield Hurstville and six in the Hurstville CBD.

From April 12, families are encouraged to follow the egg trail, learn about their community through the eggs as well as their associated signage, video content and photos captured during the egg’s development. 

Families are also invited to vote for their favourite egg, with the winners being announced at the end of the campaign on May 1.

The three eggs with the most votes will receive a cash prize from Westfield Hurstville:

1st Prize: $5,000 | 2nd Prize: $3,000 | 3rd Prize: $2,000 

“ADS has enjoyed being part of this project with its invitation to convey our values and the work we do through an artistic medium,” said ADS CEO Antoinette Chow.

“Our egg features rainbow colours and people from a variety of cultures to show our commitment to diversity and inclusion.

“We hope people vote for our egg because they can see we’re ‘good eggs’ here to support and empower some of the most vulnerable groups in our community.”
