Perth Stadium EOI - Noongar Artists

Tuesday, 5 May 2015

Key Dates:

Expressions of Interest due: 5pm on Friday 15 May 2015

Noongar artists are invited to submit an Expression of Interest for a number of artwork opportunities within the Sports Precinct.

The new Perth Stadium is a significant and exciting project currently under construction on the Burswood Peninsular. The incorporation of art within the Sports Precinct offers a unique opportunity to showcase and celebrate Perth's Whadjuk community and express the significant cultural and historical narratives through public artworks.

Westadium is seeking Expressions of Interest from Noongar artists to take part in a four day workshop from 2nd - 5th June 2015 at the Kings Street Art Centre (357 Murray Street, Perth).

During the workshop artists will be given the opportunity to develop designs suitable for stand-alone sculptures, shade canopies, and playscape elements.

The workshop will provide a creative and professional development opportunity for Noongar artists seeking to expand their existing practice into 3D artforms.

No previous public art or sculptural experience is required to attend the workshop.

From this Expression of Interest call out, approximately 12 Noongar artists will be invited to attend the workshop.

Artists participating in the workshop will be paid an artist fee of $500 per day. For Artists living outside the Perth metropolitan area, a travel subsidy will be arranged.

After the workshop the Stadium Public Art Selection Panel will review the designs and select artists to commission. Selected artist/s will be paid an additional commission fee.
