Calling public artists

We are establishing an e-mail list to make it easy to contact artists involved in public art whenever we have opportunities – such as when we are advertising for expressions of interests for new commissions.

Once we have your name and email address, you will never miss a Nillumbik public art announcement. The form also allows you to include your professional web or social media addresses, so we can keep track of what you’re working on.

If you’re an artist with an interest in public art please register your interest below:

  • develop an approach to the ongoing creation of new elements of interpretive design artworks at key sites throughout the reserve system, responding to both Indigenous and post-European-settlement cultural sites, including creative coordination role as lead artist for the extended Interpretive Design Artwork roll out.
