East Maitland IGA Laneway runs from Lawes Street to a public carpark at the rear of the shopping precinct. This Laneway is a direct and easy walk to the rear carpark and could become a significant local laneway once activated with a unique and visually appealing project. This project is directed by the Place Activation Strategy and guiding principles of ‘After Dark’, ‘Repurpose’ and ‘Street Art’.
The project could include a lighting element, greening, performance space and furniture to encourage people to use the space differently. The completed work will contribute to the overall cultural identity of the city and increase use of the space both day and night.
Expressions of Interest (EOI) are open 19 September for the project. Submissions will be open until midnight 13 October 2019.
Budget: $10,000 to $30,000 (plus GST if applicable) depending on the complexity of the project.
