Richmond Valley Council is inviting experienced artists and/or artist teams to submit an expression of interest for the concept development, design and production of a mural for the Casino reservoir.
This project offers a significant opportunity for an artist, or a group of artists, to create a unique statement about the evolving identity of Casino and its community.
Council will select three artists and/or teams to develop a concept, indicative budget and timeline for which they will be paid $1000 per person or team.
Council officers, along with community representatives, will assess the three submissions against a set of criteria outlined within the project brief. One proposal will be selected to be commissioned for installation.
A budget of up to $80,000 is available for the commissioning of the mural. This allocation must cover all associated project costs such as: final concept design; artist fee; site preparation; equipment hire; paint and art supplies; site visits and associated meetings; associated accommodation and travel costs; public liability insurance; and working at height permits.
Interested parties should submit their expression of interest in writing and forwarded to the General Manager, Richmond Valley Council, Locked Bag 10 Casino NSW 2470. Alternatively via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Expressions of interest are to be received no later than Friday 15 January. Further information and enquiries can be made by contacting Council on 02 6660 0300.
