Sydney WorldPride Expression of Interest
The NSW Government is proud to support Sydney WorldPride in 2023.
Placemaking NSW is seeking expressions of interest from LGBTQIA+ artists to deliver temporary artworks in foreshore locations in our precincts during WorldPride Sydney 2023. The works will create an art trail along the foreshore that supports inclusion and the celebratory nature of WorldPride Sydney 2023. The works will remain in situ for the duration of the event from 17 February to 5 March 2023.
Artists are welcome to submit concepts for:
- a linking series of work/s along the foreshore or key public spaces of The Rocks/Tallawoladah and Darling Harbour/ Tumbalong; or
- a stand-alone work (or works) in one or both precinct/s. For example, an artist may submit one work for one specific location or multiple works for installation across The Rocks / Tallawoladah and Darling Harbour/Tumbalong precincts.
The budget to deliver a series of artwork/s across both precincts is $80,000+GST.
The budget for each precinct is $40,000+GST which means should an artist submit one or more works for one precinct only, the maximum budget is $40,000+GST.
All forms of artwork will be considered, except for live performance.
Placemaking NSW reserves the right to select one or more artists for this program. Collaborations are supported if desired. Artists can register their interest by sending the below details to firstname.lastname@example.org. with the subject heading ‘Sydney WorldPride 2023 Artist EOI’.
