Call For Artists - Banyule's bi-annual program of ephemeral artworks in public spaces
We are seeking expressions of interest from artists to participate in the Pinpoint Art in Public Spaces Program in May 2018.
This program aims to invigorate Banyule’s public spaces, encourages people to experience the arts in unexpected places and to think about the city differently.
We are looking for small, new and original, site-specific art projects. Works are one-off, ephemeral art experiences delivered in a public space within Banyule – a shopping strip, car park, laneway, swimming pool, local park or even a bus stop – it might be anywhere, as long as it's creative. It's up to you. You tell us which space you’d like to activate and how.
It may be contemporary performance, visual art, digital-media, writing or a combination of art forms. We look for work that is engaging, accessible and invites contemplation. Think creatively about bringing life to a location that is significant to your community.
Grants of $1,000 will be paid to each successful project.
Proposed works must address the themes of the Pinpoint Program:
Projects will be assessed and selected on criteria such as:
- Clarity of concept
- Relationship to site/location
- Exploration of themes
- Collaborative opportunities
- Innovation & creativity
- Capacity to deliver
Submissions are open until midnight on Saturday 31 March 2018.
We encourage you to discuss your application with us prior to submission - please contact Hannes Berger (Arts & Cultural Development Officer) on 9457 9913.
