Closes 22 May. Public Art Community Peers Register will assist Bathurst Regional Council to develop a strategic approach to the creative activation of the region’s public spaces.
Bathurst Regional Council is seeking suitably qualified and passionate individuals to join its Public Art Community Peers Register to assist Bathurst Regional Council to develop a strategic approach to the creative activation of the region’s public spaces in line with the Bathurst Public Art Policy.
Members of the community with professional expertise or demonstrated interest in public art, visual art, the built environment, heritage, and /or community engagement are encouraged to nominate.
This is a unique opportunity for members of the community to contribute to the development of Public Art projects in Bathurst, says Mayor Bobby Bourke. Public Art will enhance the region’s public spaces, drive cultural tourism, and help cement Bathurst as NSW’s premier inland centre of culture and creativity.
Community Peers wishing to nominate for the Register should have an appreciation and understanding of art in the public domain, an understanding of community expectations, and strong connections to the Bathurst LGA. Three Community Peers will be appointed to the Public Art Program Committee, with other Community Peers called upon to provide advice and expertise as required.
