How to create and be commissioned for public art projects

Artists have opportunities to create and be commissioned for public art projects. But how does this happen? And where do you start?

I’ll be talking to talented artists Claudia Chan Shaw, Nancy Liang and Fiona Lu on this topic. Together, we have all created public art projects in this year’s Sydney Lunar Festival for the City of Sydney. 

This talk will go behind the scenes on what’s involved, how the process works, who we’ve collaborated with and how we’ve brought these artistic visions to life.

The free artists’ talk is produced by the City of Sydney.
