Geelong Arts Centre’s ambitious redevelopment continues to take shape, with plans to integrate public artwork by First Nations artists into the $140 million Little Malop Street redevelopment.

Expressions of Interest are open to experienced First Nations sound and visual artists. All EOI submissions must be considerate and respectful of Wadawurrung Traditional Owners’ cultural rights and responsibilities.

The selected artists will work with managing contractor Lendlease, project architects ARM and the project partners - Geelong Arts Centre, Creative Victoria and Development Victoria – to turn their creative concepts into artwork and soundscapes that will be integrated into the design of the redeveloped Centre.

Geelong Arts Centre’s Little Malop Street redevelopment commenced in 2020 and is expected to be complete in 2023.

Expressions of Interest for the First Nations design opportunities are now open via the Buying for Victoria and Geelong Arts Centre websites: www.tenders.vic.gov.au and geelongartscentre.org.au. Submissions close on 29 July.
