Brisbane Canvas: expression of interest

DEADLINE : 1st December, 2017

Seeking creative talent for Brisbane Canvas Expression of Interest

Brisbane City Council is continuing its successful Brisbane Canvas project, with the opportunity for talented emerging artists to be commissioned to install their mural artwork on infrastructure across the city.

Brisbane Canvas introduces a rich range of innovative and imaginative commissioned street art to walls, pillars and bridge structures in Brisbane, enlivening our city streets and public spaces. The project provides interesting opportunities for artists to realise their artwork on a range of sites.

Artists are invited to prepare an artwork concept that addresses the theme ‘Optimism’ and explore the way we see the world with hope, energy, passion and playfulness.
