Two artists from the Bunbury Geographe region will have the chance to create an interactive art piece to be featured as part of the 2018 Tree Street Art Safari.

Following the inclusion of a temporary art installation by Michele Grimston called Nana’s House at this year’s event, next year’s event will extend the opportunity to two artists to develop and install their own work.

The Art Safari Committee is now inviting artists from the Bunbury Geographe region to submit applications to develop their own interactive works for the 2018 event, with the successful applicants to receive a one-off grant of $1000 for materials, construction and installation costs.

The projects will be granted to one successful applicant from the region and an artist from the Tree Street area, with a Tree Street home nominating to host the non-resident’s installation.

Helena Sahm, a founding artist of the Tree Street Art Safari, said the installation would offer artists an “opportunity to experiment”.

“(It should be) an ephemeral piece which lends itself to conceptual freedom – it’s a great opportunity for an emerging artist to apply,” she said.

“We encourage innovation and something which is inclusive, hollistic and fun.”

Applications close on August 31.
