Alpine Shire works to flush out tal­ent

Alpine Observer - - News -

A SEC­OND street art project is set to be com­pleted by Alpine Shire Coun­cil’s youth team later this year.

Pro­fes­sional street artist AJ Tan will work with a small group of lo­cal teens to de­sign and in­stall a mu­ral on the Pore­punkah River­side Park toi­let block.

The project is ex­pected to be de­liv­ered in De­cem­ber and Alpine coun­cil is invit­ing mem­bers of the pub­lic to at­tend a com­mu­nity in­for­ma­tion and con­sul­ta­tion ses­sion at the park on Novem­ber 9 from 4pm.

Alpine de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer Jenny Corser said coun­cil would also like to hear from any young peo­ple in­ter­ested in be­ing in­volved it the project.

“This is a great op­por­tu­nity for young peo­ple to use their in­ter­est in art, learn­ing street art de­sign and ap­pli­ca­tion tech­niques, and to be in­volved in a pos­i­tive com­mu­nity project,” she said.

Last De­cem­ber, 10 en­thu­si­as­tic teenagers helped street artists An­drew Bourke and An­drè Barouh with the ‘Brighten the Park’ project at Myrtle­ford’s Apex Park.

The project saw four mu­rals painted to com­ple­ment the sur­round­ing area and nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment.

The fea­tured im­ages were of Myrtle­ford’s to­bacco kilns, moun­tains, Lake Buf­falo and the en­dan­gered re­gent hon­eyeater.

Project of­fi­cer Joe Ar­blaster will also at­tend next week’s in­for­ma­tion ses­sion to dis­cuss queries, sug­ges­tions or con­cerns, giv­ing com­mu­nity mem­bers the op­por­tu­nity to view de­sign plans for the up­grade of the cur­rent ameni­ties as part of coun­cil’s cap­i­tal works pro­gram.
