Northern Beaches Council is currently developing the Northern Beaches Coast Walk stretching from Manly to Palm Beach as a continuous path along beach fronts and spectacular headlands, through residential communities and coastal villages. A public art trail will be delivered as part of this larger Coast Walk project.
The Aboriginal Art and Storytelling Project is a major opportunity to celebrate Aboriginal culture as the first outcome of the Northern Beaches Coast Walk Public Art Strategy.
We invite Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander artists; Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander organisations, and teams that can demonstrate Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander-led business principles and governance to register their interest in proposing a series of contemporary public artworks and visual storytelling systems to highlight the significance of Aboriginal culture and place along the Coast Walk and to promote awareness of Aboriginal places and stories for the broader public, via creative forms of interpretation.
These artworks should aim to enrich Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people's experience of the region, without compromising environmentally fragile and culturally sensitive sites. The budget for this project is $350,000.
The commission includes the concept, design, development, documentation, fabrication and installation of the artwork as a suite of elements. Artworks could include, but are not limited to, sculpture, immersive installations, sound works, functional/integrated art, light works, digital applications, environmental art and murals.
