Lansdowne Crescent Primary School is a hub for the West Hobart community, with an inquiry-based teaching philosophy and strongly values engagement with the arts.

Applications are sought for outdoor artwork which promotes curiosity, imagination and discovery as part of a major upgrade to its learning facilities.

Any artform may be proposed, as long as the work addresses the Artist’s Brief, and the school encourages works which highlight or respond to the natural environment. The successful artist will work with the architect, landscape architect and the school to jointly create an integrated and creative place for students.

A shortlist will be established to meet with artists and refine initial concepts.

This commission is open to Tasmanian artists only.

There is an opportunity for artists to meet the project architects on site from 10am – 11am on Tuesday 22 October 2019. Please contact David Patman - (03) 6165 6665 or - if you would like to attend.
