Windale Hub: Creative Inclusions

Lake Macquarie City Council is seeking proposals for a series of creative treatments to be included as part of the construction of the Windale Hub, Bilyabayi.

The project seeks to acknowledge, strengthen and celebrate the Windale community’s relationship with the site as their civic lounge room; a place to gather, learn, connect and celebrate.

The commissions, whilst artist-led, should be community focused and engage community members in the making of the work.

Council is offering three commissions for the design, fabrication and installation of a creative treatment:

  1. a) Suspended sculpture for main open public space – $50,000 plus GST
  2. b) Outdoor artwork – $20,000 plus GST
  3. c) Children’s area creative treatment $4,000 plus GST

These three commissions will support a series of community and creative projects, coordinated by Council, that will also be incorporated within the building.

Expressions of interest open on 11 July with applications closing on Thursday 18 August 2022.
