MidCoast Council (MCC) invites artists or Artist groups to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) for the development of artworks for the Barrington Coast Art Trail - The Tanks, as per the criteria set out in this brief.
MCC values our unique, diverse and culturally rich community, and supports a thriving and growing economy to provide a vibrant, creative and sustainable art and culture sector.
The Project Background
With funding received through the Regional Tourism Bushfire Recovery (RTBR) Grants, MCC has created a unique opportunity for artists to contribute to the foundation of The Barrington Coast Art Trail- The Tanks.
Mid-Coast Council has identified several water reservoirs in the region which are considered potential sites for this project. The RTBR grant will enable funding for the construction of artwork on the first 2 of the selected tank sites at
Site 1: Barrington Water Reservoir
Site 2: Tea Gardens Reservoirs
The final selection of these 2 sites was dependent on location and asset condition, together with the tank’s connectivity to a broader vision for a self-drive tour of public sculpture, murals and artist studios around the Barrington Coast.
