Artists Call Out: Jezzine Barracks redevelopment project (Townsville)

Dear artists,

I work for the Jumbana Group, a design and strategy company. We have been contracted by the Jezzine Barracks Community Trust as Project Consultants to artistically represent both the Aboriginal history and the military history of the site. The Jezzine Barracks in Townsville is being redeveloped into a public art precinct.

We are looking for Queensland 2D artists, 3D artists and practitioners such as those working in glass, metal, wood and stone. Experience with large scale and exterior installations is not necessarily required, as partnerships may be formed later to build and install.

If you might be interested in being a part of this exciting project, please submit your CV/profile and brief examples (inc photos) of your previous work to info@jumbana.com.au. You do not need to come up with a proposal.  Deadline for submissions is 31 January 2012.

If you know of any other artists/sculptors/practitioners, please email them with this information or give me their contact details and I will get in touch with them. This will be a huge project, and it would be great to get as many Queensland artists/sculptors/practitioners involved as possible.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me by phone or email if you’d like any further information. Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Warm regards,

Anna
