PROJECT | New public art project for Fitzgibbon

The Urban Land Development Authority’s has received funding from Queensland’s art + place program for a public artwork at the Fitzgibbon Community Centre. Harbinger Consultants’ John Armstrong will be leading the project and working with several artists to realise an artwork that engages the local community and enhances the environment of the centre, which will be a focal point in the emerging community.

Harbinger has undertaken several consultancies in the Fitzgibbon UDA including the preparation of a public art strategy, project management/curating of the tuned railing artwork and, in partnership with Foresters Community Finance, strategic and business planning for the development of the Fitzgibbon Community Centre with engagement in social innovation and enterprise thinking.

Earlier this week Arts Minister Rachel Nolan announced almost $1 million in art+place funding to enhance public places and inspire communities.

“These works support the Bligh Government’s commitment to funding art that adds beauty and interest to popular public spaces, brings a community together and expresses its identity and history,” she said.

“The benefits of public art projects is far reaching also providing vital employment opportunities to artists, designers, project managers, landscapers and manufacturing and construction workers, among others.”
