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 July 2017.
The 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 looking for small, new and original, site-specific art projects. Works will be 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’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 are looking for work that is engaging, accessible and invites contemplation. Think creatively about bringing life to a location that is significant to your community. Artists of all abilities and backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
Works in this round must be delivered between Saturday 1 July and Sunday 30 July.
A fee of $1,000 will be paid to each successful project.
Proposed works must respond to the themes of Pinpoint:
- Local connections – between communities and to place
- Promoting the creative industries
- Maps and geography
- 2017 specific theme - Water
Submissions are open until midnight on Wednesday 31 May 2017.
To discuss your application please feel free to contact Hannes Berger (Arts & Cultural Development Officer) on 9457 9913.
