Time to get arty for Lake Mac Libraries

Are you an artist looking to bring a little joy to some inquisitive young minds?

Well, Lake Macquarie Council is on the lookout for new artworks to engage and delight children between the ages of 0-10 years in three Lake Mac libraries – Belmont, Charlestown and Toronto.

Artists are invited to submit one design per library to be assessed by a selection panel for its relevance to the audience, quality of visual representation, ability to create a sense of place and community identity, and how the design will enhance the library.

A commission of up to $3,000 per library is available and artworks will be installed by Thursday 17 October.

“We aim to create library spaces where children feel comfortable and safe, enjoy spending time and promote positive literacy experiences,” council’s arts, culture and tourism manager Jacqui Hemsley said.

“These artworks are part of our vision to create contemporary places where people can meet, acquire knowledge, share inspiring experiences and grasp new opportunities.”

Expressions of interest can be submitted online. Applications close Monday 2 September.
