Pub­lic art pro­pos­als wanted

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

DOU­GLAS Shire Council in­vites pub­lic art pro­pos­als for Council’s parks and es­planades. The project will be funded through the Re­gional Arts De­vel­op­ment Fund (RADF), a State and Lo­cal Govern­ment part­ner­ship to sup­port lo­cal arts and cul­ture in Re­gional Queens­land.

“If you have a con­cept for a sculp­ture, mu­ral or an­other pub­lic art idea for a Council park or es­planade, which will en­gage a lo­cal pro­fes­sional or emerg­ing artist, we would love to see your pro­posal,” said Mayor Leu.

“We have so many cre­ative and in­no­va­tive artists in Dou­glas and I en­cour­age in­di­vid­u­als or groups of artists to sub­mit pro­pos­als that re­flect our par­tic­u­lar cul­ture, his­tory, in­dus­tries and en­vi­ron­ment”.

“This ini­tia­tive of Council’s RADF pro­gram, Pub­lic Art, recog­nises our lo­cal cul­ture, his­tory, en­vi­ron­ment and in­dus­tries; and aims to con­trib­ute to lo­cal vi­brancy, and pride of place en­abling artists and the com­mu­nity to cre­ate and par­tic­i­pate in the arts,” said Mayor Cr Ju­lia Leu and RADF Com­mit­tee mem­ber. The project brief is avail­able from Council’s Ad­min­is­tra­tion Of­fices. The clos­ing date is 4.30pm Mon­day July 31, 2017.
