Expressions of interest for a significant new public artwork commission that will adorn the eastern façade of Geelong Performing Arts Centre (GPAC) have now closed.

The project is part of a significant redevelopment of GPAC, the largest project in the centre’s history, that will expand and upgrade GPAC’s facilities.

The Commission aims to create an artwork that complements, and is integrated into the architectural form of the redevelopment, acts as a marker for the GPAC building and for the Geelong Cultural Precinct, and conveys a sense of the dynamic and emerging culture of Geelong and its region.

Funding available: Following the EOI process, three artists will be shortlisted and receive an honorarium of $3,000 to develop their ideas.

The final commission has a budget of between $300,000 - $500,000
