Bundoora Nebula Residency


Thu October 12, 2017

In partnership with Arts Access Victoria, we are excited to launch Nimbus, a weekly visual art studio for artists with disability.

This is a rare opportunity for a group of committed artists to explore their individual arts practice with the support and expertise of experienced artists in a contemporary art gallery setting. In addition to practical studio work, artists will have access to gallery exhibitions and professional development opportunities including portfolio building, writing artist statements and preparing work for presentation.

The Nimbus supported visual arts studio will be housed within the portable studio space “Nebula” inside the grounds of Bundoora Homestead Art Centre.

Arts Access Victoria are currently inviting artists with disability who work in any visual art form to apply.

WHEN | October 12 to December 21, 2017  (every Thursday) 9:30am – 3:30pm

COST | Nimbus is free of charge for this introductory term

Public Art in Darebin | Have Your Say

Fri November 17, 2017

How would you like to experience Public Art in Darebin? Have your say by 7 December 2017!

Public art enables Darebin to stimulate a thriving and creative culture in the city and provides the community with an every day experience with creativity.

Council wants to hear from you as we begin developing a new Public Art Framework.

What is Public Art?

Public art is any visible art that is located in a community space. It can be permanent such as a sculpture, or temporary such as a projection on to a wall or window. Some forms of public art are ephemeral and can last only hours or days, such as a performance or a visual artwork that disintegrates.

For further details about current public art in Darebin, check out the Public Artworks Discovery Map.

How do I get involved?

Is public art important to you? Does public art make your community a more inspiring and surprising space? What public art would you like to see in Darebin?

By taking part in our survey you will help us plan the future role of Council in the changing Public Art environment in Darebin and work towards building a new Public Art Framework.
