Three expressions of interest now open for artists

Published on Friday, 24 March 2023 at 10:06:17 AM

The Spalding Revitalisation Project is set to get a healthy injection of creativity with expressions of interests now open for three artists briefs.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn encouraged local artists to seize the opportunity to be part of the project.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to create something that will take the project to the next level in a way that reflects the diverse community who will use the space,” he said. 

“The community have a clear desire for the artworks to respectfully convey local stories with a focus on Yamatji cultural knowledge.

“Briefs include a sandblast artwork, multi-use court artwork and the facilitation of log artwork painting, so I urge local artists to throw their hat into the ring.”

The sandblast artwork brief is a design-only concept seeking a graphic representation of the story of ‘Why the Emu Can’t Fly’, which will then be digitised and integrated into a concrete pathway.

The multi-use court artwork brief is also a design-only concept, with the final artwork to be installed on the ground surface of the multi-use court in AMC Park.

The third expression of interest is seeking responses from artists and artwork facilitators to engage with the community to paint approximately 60 logs with a cohesive artistic theme.

Expressions of interest for all three artist briefs close Friday 7 April 2023.

Copies of the Artist Briefs, detailing creative considerations, selection criteria, artist fees and how to apply, are available on the Geraldton Regional Art Gallery website here. Alternatively, phone (08) 9956 6659 or email for more information.
