$100,000 in frame for City of Sydney artist program

City of Sydney Council is offering national and international artists up to $100,000 as part of its annual Art & About Sydney program.

The Council is seeking expressions of interest for projects across all art genres that will contribute to the cultural richness of Sydney by captivating and engaging the public.

The projects must be new works that will be commissioned and produced by the City of Sydney specifically for Art & About.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for artists to bring surprising and colourful works into public spaces and unconventional locations across the city,” said Lord Mayor, Clover Moore AO.

“The call is open to individuals and groups working across diverse artistic disciplines.

“We’re looking for projects that are new, innovative, and demonstrate artistic excellence – works that push boundaries and challenge norms – as well as projects that are participatory and inclusive.”

The selected projects will be provided with up to $100,000 in funding to be part of the 2024/25 Art & About Sydney program.

The Art & About EOI opens on Wednesday 31 January and closes at 5pm (AEDT) on Wednesday 28 February.
