Public Art Commission – Discover Wynyard Map

Feature Image

Waratah-Wynyard Council (WWC) is seeking an illustrated map to be created by a Tasmanian artist.

The illustrated map is intended to communicate information about the Wynyard location, enabling a visual dialogue between the community, artist and viewer. The resulting product is intended to be reproduced and used to guide and educate as well as enjoyed as an attractive keepsake.

The scope of map should be limited to the Wynyard ‘coastal and riverine walks’ which could include from Flowerdale Bass Hwy bridge to Alexandria House, Freestone Cove and Fossil Bluff to Gutteridge Gardens out past to Nurses Pines to Doctor’s Rocks. The map need not be to scale but should reflect some proportionality and can be in segments (eg both sides of map itself). Content could include:
a. Time and distances for the walks where appropriate
b. Relative difficulty and wheelchair accessibility where appropriate
c. Toilet and parking facilities
Artists should request this information from the manager Community Activation before commencing design.

Please refer to the artist’s brief document here [1]

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Artists are encouraged to discuss their applications with the Manager Community Activation before submission.
