As a result of the COVID-19 crisis the team at Rookwood General Cemetery have made the very difficult decision not to proceed with HIDDEN Rookwood Sculptures this year. This includes the sculpture, film and student programs.
The health and safety of our community is our top priority. Accordingly, in line with Government recommendations regarding non-essential, organised gatherings of more than 500 people outdoors, continuing with HIDDEN is not feasible for 2020.
We genuinely thank you for submitting an application to be a part of the exhibition. HIDDEN has become a firm favourite on the Sydney cultural calendar, and it is because of our network of valued artists, partners and stakeholders that HIDDEN has grown with such success. 
Please be assured that we remain committed to continuing HIDDEN in the future and we look forward to your ongoing support in the coming years.



Start your walk at the Rookwood General Cemetery Office on Hawthorne Avenue. Please come to the Office first to collect your catalogue/guide/map.
