DEADLINE EXTENDED UNTIL WEDNESDAY 4 FEBRUARY, SO GET IN QUICK WITH YOUR EOIs TO HELLO@PROPEL.ORG.AU!

 

Propel Youth Arts WA is offering two young creatives an unpaid mentorship to work with multidisciplinary artists Calvin Chee and Matt McVeigh, to conceive, create and install a large ephemeral and interactive public art installation for the 2015 KickstART Festival, during National Youth Week

This is an invaluable opportunity for those interested in public art to build their creative networks, bridge the gap between their study and work, and gain hands-on experience whilst working with industry established artists. 

With over 20 years of experience between them, Calvin and Matt have been creating art together for the past 6 years throughout Western Australia. With experience in public art, community art, set and costume design, puppetry, sculpture, and kinetic art; many of their artistic collaborations have incorporated an element of reusing or recycling.

Check out their work here!
