Kiama VIC Welcome Art Project
Call for Expressions of Interest
Destination Kiama (Kiama Municipal Council) is seeking artists to submit an Expression of Interest to develop and create a ‘story board’ designed to cover the external walls of the Kiama Visitor Information Centre at Blowhole Point.
The aim of this project is to significantly improve the aesthetic appeal and visual impact of the Kiama Visitor Information Centre and add value to the site by engaging the local arts community in offering a contemporary evocative art space aiming to:
- Strengthen the current local art offering within the Kiama Municipality
- Support local artists and stimulate opportunities for participation and positive community connections
- Reflect the diversity of Kiama’s natural, social and cultural dynamics
- Tell our “Kiama Area” story
- Acknowledge, promote and depict Kiama’s cultural and indigenous heritage
- Improve the amenity and activate the space with engaging public art
- Replace the traditional and weathered signage in place, and work the accreditation specific information requirements into the mural design.
Artists are invited to submit expressions of interest which include preliminary design ideas for the project by Friday 14 June, 2019.
