Public art creation

Evolve: Public Artists Development Program is a hands-on, wholistic, capacity-building program to create a sustainable, economically stimulated, regional public art industry. Evolve responds to a need for more public art professional development opportunities in regional WA, as there are limited local creatives who can successfully respond to Public Art EOI’s and deliver large scale and complex projects.


This project will upskill a niche profession (public art artists), and give participants the knowledge, skills, practice and confidence to deliver project briefs and generate a consistent income through their practice. Local artists are in a position to tell the local story in an authentic way and public art commissions will be able to reflect the original narratives of the region.

Evolve will also deliver community engagement sessions, including community workshops,and meet + greetsessions with the facilitating artist practitioners, to connect artists with the community, stimulate ideas for future public art projects,and share and growthe benefits of public art with stakeholders.
