Producing Public Art In Byron

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

This course is for artists and sculptors who wish to take their work to the public realm. Having your 3D art on a street corner or in a public park, or on the grounds of a museum or a resort, involves a whole other set of skills, often not associated with making art; risk assessments, engineering to council standards, collaborating with council and specialists, creating a secure worksite and having an understanding of civil works. Your creative process is also not entirely your own anymore. Your progress needs to be scheduled and regularly presented to others, who will assess it on aspects of appropriateness and social relevance.

This course is ideal for local artists preparing expressions of interest for Mullumbimby Sculpture Walk, in preparation for INGENUITY, our first Mullum Community Sculpture Fest in November. Its also in response to an increased desire by Byron Shire Council for art in public spaces and a growing need for three dimensional work by the corporate world.

It will also lay a foundation for a collaborative work, to be directed by Joey and Suvira, which will draw upon the participating artists to conceive and produce a site specific work to be presented at the INGENUITY Fest in November. This will include sourcing ‘detritus’ or abandoned materials, consideration of all relevant factors and spending time in the fabrication and subsequent installation of the work. Artists will have the opportunity to use existing skills and develop new ones as the work evolves.

Suvira and Joey are experienced in all of those areas. They will take you on a journey exploring those hurdles and pitfalls in a fun way, using participant’s own designs as case studies, while having engineers, council workers and public art producers enlighten you on the details.
