The art+place Queensland Public Art Fund supports projects that enhance public spaces and community experience of place. The assessment criteria to achieve this are:
The assessment is made by a ministerially-appointed curatorial panel with expertise in visual art, urban design, architecture and landscape architecture and industry experts (Stream 3). In recognition of the high number of Indigenous communities in Queensland, two members of the panel are appointed to represent Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. In Streams 1 and 2, final endorsement of projects is made by the Minister for the Arts.
All applicants to the art+place Queensland Public Art Fund must meet the requirements detailed in the downloadable Guidelines document.
Other documents of relevance to your application are the art+place Queensland Public Art Fund policy, and the Queensland Arts and Culture Sector Development Plan 2010-13. art+place is guided by the Queensland whole of government priorities as outlined in Toward Q2, the Qld Government vision for 2020.
Public art projects are funded based on the assessment of an Artwork Commission Plan. The Artwork Commission Plan details the nature of the project, and includes the name/s of proposed artist/s and/or selection process, professional public art project manager and/or curator working on the project amongst a number of other details outlined in the art+place Artwork Commission Plan Form.
For funding requests over $400 000, please contact art+place program staff prior to submitting an Application form to art+place Curatorial Panel for approval. An Artwork Commission Plan will also need to be developed and submitted to the art+place Curatorial Panel for approval.
For funding requests of $400 000 and under, please download and complete the Artwork Commission Plan.
One of the standard conditions of receiving a grant is that artistic, statistical and financial reports are provided to Arts Queensland at designated times throughout the term of the funding agreement. art+place requires quarterly reports to show progress on your project, and a final Outcome Report that will acquit your project.
