Local artists wanted to apply for public mural for community or township with grant of $20,000 from Baw Baw Shire Council
Council is seeking expressions of interest from local artists and creative community members keen to deliver a public art mural project for a community or township within Baw Baw Shire.
Through the Public Art Program, Council has a $20,000 grant available to support the commissioning of a mural project. The mural is to be publicly displayed within a publicly-owned Council space, or on private land having sought appropriate permission.
Many talented artists live and work in the Shire and visitors and residents can see their work in galleries and workshops located in many of Baw Baw Shire's towns
