Whitsunday Public Art Call to Artists closed

We have had a fantastic response to the ‘Call to artists’ for the Whitsunday Reef Recovery and Public Art Project. Applications will be considered by an assessment panel during August. Successful applicants will be contacted in late August-early September.


On Monday 6 August we temporarily installed four sculptures at Langford Island to research how they integrate with the natural environment, and what visitor perceptions are of the artwork. The research will assist in determining whether locals and tourists prefer large or small sculptures, marine species and if the preferred location of art installations is on the beach, intertidal or underwater. The sculptures will be removed after 3 months and may be relocated as part of the larger project. A short video of the installation and establishment of the Public Art Research project can be found HERE.

Despite lofty emissions targets and pledges by the international community, scientists predict that the effects of climate change are likely to get worse before any improvement is realised. Consequently, the next generation is in line to inherit natural ecosystems in a much poorer, and declining state than present, potentially requiring drastic action to support reef resilience and ecosystem health.
