Public Art Expressions of Interest: Jingili Accessible Playspace

City of Darwin is calling for expressions of interest from experienced designers for a new public artwork. The Commission will contribute to the redevelopment of the playspace at Jingili Watergardens with the addition of public art that is integrated within the design of the playspace development through a co-design conceptual framework.

This is a unique public art commission as the contracted designer will work collaboratively with the newly formed Free Space Studio Public Art Collective (comprised of six selected artists with disability, a workshop facilitator/sculptor mentor and project manager) from Arts Access Darwin at Darwin Community Arts to co-design, curate and integrate the six artists artworks into the final design. This co-creation model for public art will require strong relationship building and communication skills.

Full project details and an outline of the stages of commissioning are detailed in the Project Brief on the council website:
