Liverpool Council pitches artwork opportunity

Artists from the area have been called to apply for a program by Liverpool City Council, funded by Create NSW’s Making Spaces.

Three artists will have the opportunity to be paid $9000 to deliver the project and have their works featured on the large screen in the more recently updated outdoor settings of Macquarie Mall.

The program aims to create hubs for a diverse mix of arts, screen and digital projects, with the council providing the space and to organise the viewing events.

During the program, each chosen artist will take over the space in Shop 10-11 Northumberland Arcade for approximately three months each.

Liverpool Mayor Wendy Waller said artists will have the chance to have their work viewed by a large audience.

“This is a great opportunity for artists to build their skills in digital art forms and it’s also a great opportunity for local groups and individuals to share their stories in new ways,” she said.

“Supporting artists at a local level is so important in bringing the community together. It’s a wonderful thing when people are able to see themselves represented in local culture and there is such a rich variety of stories to tell here in Liverpool.”

She said the council hope for the chosen artists to work with community groups such as the Western Sydney Migrant Resource Centre, Gandangara Land Council and CuriousWorks to create community-inspired content.
