Creative Regions manages the Place Activation Program on behalf of the Bundaberg Regional Council.  The North Bundaberg Suburb Blitz is a project that has been developing for the last 18 months that will culminate in a series of projects and an event called Picnic Under the Bridge on 24th July 2016.

 

The painting of bollards is certainly not a unique idea.  However it has been a popular discussion in the arts sector and with the Bundaberg Regional Council for the last few years.

 

Earlier in 2016 we posted up on the Place Activation Bundaberg Region Facebook Group about the potential to paint the bollards in Lions Park, under the Burnett Traffic Bridge and the community responded it to positively.

 

We are calling for Expression of Interest from artists in the Bundaberg Region to apply to be one of 5 artists working on this project.

 

The five artists selected will be paid a fee of $250 each (or $50 per bollard).  They will collaboratively decide on a limited palette of 5 colours to work with in order to provide a visual link between each of the artist’s designs.

 

Each artist will paint a cluster of 5 bollards, spaced out on the western side of the Lions Park area.

 

We would like each of these artists to paint their last bollard in front of the public at the community event “Picnic Under the Bridge” planned for Sunday 24th July, 11am-2pm.  This event will be held in and around this bollarded area and will include a band, market stalls and the launch of the North Bundaberg StoryWalk.

 

FEES PAYABLE TO SELECTED ARTISTS

This community arts project has a budget of $50 per bollard for 5 bollards per artist.  A maximum payment of $250 per artist for up to 5 artists.    Paint will be supplied for the project in addition to this payment.
