Public Artwork Expression of Interest | Call Out - 8 Phillip St, Parramatta.


Authority Creative is now accepting expressions of interest from local artists to develop a premium public artwork for the new 8 Phillip Street, Parramatta development by Coronation Property.

We are open to emerging artists submitting expressions of interest who have not worked to this scale, however, the capacity to deliver and rigour of response will be vital. The distribution of budget will be amended based on the level of involvement in Authority Creative assisting an artist to deliver the work.

Our vision showcases all that is unique about this site, past, present and future. Our vision for public artwork will highlight the architectural features as well as the history and future of the site and the area. Our aim is to bring life, vibrancy and moments of surprise and intrigue to the site creating new and energetic opportunities for the public domain and the community.

Works of the highest calibre from industry leaders will make a positive contribution to the diversity, vitality and individuality of this Parramatta precinct.
