Local Artist Expression of Interest (EOI)

We’re seeking a local artist to join the team and paint a mural as part of the Three Walls project in Charlton.

Are you keen to collaborate and work with other passionate artists to develop a set of works in Charlton? We’re looking to collaborate with a local artist who lives within 80km of the Charlton township, we are looking for someone who is passionate about their art and keen to see it live on a new surface. While some mural experience is preferred it is not essential. We are open to mentoring an artist if experience painting at large scale is limited.

While the bulk of the painting must be complete between the 22nd - 24th NOV, we can arrange some earlier painting time to ensure the project is complete on the due date of 24th NOV.
