Call for submissions: Art & About 2015

The City of Sydney is looking for big ideas to temporarily transform public and unusual urban spaces in the Sydney CBD as part of its Art & About Sydney 2015 program.

Ideas and proposals from all art disciplines are welcome and a range of projects and installations up to the value of $80,000 are eligible.

Highlights from 2014 included Bodies in Urban Spaces by dance performers Cie. Willi Dorner, that played with our perceptions of space by squeezing brightly clothed dancers into urban nooks and crannies around the city (pictured above) and FIELD, by New Zealand architects Out Of The Dark and Fresh Concept, which turned Hyde Park South into a mesmerising maze of mirrors.

Art & About Sydney 2015 will run from 18 September – 11 October 2015. In addition to the 2015 Festival, the City of Sydney will produce a number of works outside the festival period on a project basis.
