Artists invited to activate Ballina CBD with street art

Ballina Shire Council and the Northern Rivers Community Gallery want to hear from artists who would like to participate in a public street art project.

Expressions of Interest (EOI) are being sought for painted murals and paste ups focused on sites within the Tamar Street/ Winton Lane carpark precinct and the Northern Rivers Community Gallery/Holden Lane precinct in the Ballina CBD.

“Many of the walls adjoining the carpark areas and laneways attract tagging and graffiti. This is a one-off trial that aims to demonstrate the value of quality street art in increasing vibrancy and preventing unwanted graffiti,” said Council’s Sustainability Planner, Skye McNamara.

EOI’s are sought from artists to provide either:

  • A site-specific painted mural (artist to design and install); and/or
  • Existing artwork that is suitable for reproducing as paste ups (artist to provide copies of their existing artwork and option for NRCG to print and install).

Several artists will be shortlisted and invited to submit artwork and all projects are expected to be completed by 14 October 2023.

Applications close Monday 14 August.
