EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST Public Arts Strategy for the City of Mount Gambier (Expired)


Public Arts Strategy for the City of Mount Gambier, South Australia

Closes: Friday 18 May, 2018.


We are seeking Expressions of Interest to provide a Public Arts Strategy for the City of Mount Gambier, in conjunction with our Cultural Plan (already completed).

The EOI is open to professional cultural planners and consultants, with experience in public art and community-engaged art.

The Public Art Strategies are intended to transform Mount Gambier, already known for its natural beauties, into a nationally significant, regional cultural hub, as well as a vibrant place to live in, and an important art destination to visit. This should be done by developing innovative strategies for the commissioning, creation, and presentation of public art in Mount Gambier, and by fostering, facilitating and promoting interdisciplinary dialogue, creative collaboration, sustainable growth, artistic practices, and cultural developments. The proposals should include visions about unique and strong public engagement of diverse local communities, enhancing cultural identity, as well as have for a goal the broadening of community’s experience and connection to the arts. The City of Mount Gambier is aware that art can define a city, as it has a proud history of commissioning public artworks and activation of public art spaces (e.g. Railway Lands). Therefore the proposed Public Arts Strategy should include ongoing maintenance of existing public artworks as well as  the strategic commissioning of new artwork.

BUDGET: $12,000

All submissions must include:

-          Contact details of Cultural Planner/ Consultant

-          Biographies or CVs

-          Statement (500 words maximum) describing the proposed approach and concept

Public Strategy benefits include contributing to City of Mount Gambier objectives established in the Cultural Plan. Please see:  #CREATE5290 - a Cultural and Heritage plan for Mount Gambier
