THINGS OF INTEREST and Artist opportunities
Call for Artists: Lane Cove Council’s Recycled Reindeers Project
Submittal Deadline: Friday 11 October 2013
Lane Cove Council is calling for expressions of interest from local and greater Sydney artists, designers and craftsperson’s interested in participating in a recycled reindeer project to coincide with Christmas 2013.
Seven artists/designers/craftspeople will be commissioned to design and build a three dimensional, weather resistant reindeer sculpture using recycled and repurposed materials. The completed works will pop-up in various locations throughout the local area in December 2013.
Council is seeking designs that are innovative, imaginative and bold. Successful proposals will be of a high standard in both concept and execution, while recognising public safety concerns and durability. Commissioned artists will be paid a one off payment of $1000. Council will also contribute up to $250 towards the cost of materials and, if required, a wire reindeer frame.
The project has been designed to highlight the need to think carefully about our waste at Christmas time. It encourages the community to interact and engage with issues of sustainability through innovative artistic practice using recycled and reappropriated materials.
The Recycled Reindeer project is an initiative of Lane Cove Council and is funded by the Sustainability Levy.

To register your interest, and obtain a copy of the artist brief and application form, please contact Council’s Cultural Development Officer on:
Completed applications must be received by Friday 11 October 2013 and will be selected by Lane Cove Council’s Internal Public Art Committee. All applicants will be notified by email and successful parties will be provided with further project details.
