The Octapod Association and Street Art Walking (SAW) have been given the opportunity to curate a new project, featuring two large public art walls. We are calling for artists to send Expressions of Interest from individuals or artists collectives to create a positive public artwork around the local Renew Newcastle artist-run space ARThive. This is an exciting chance for you to expose your work to a large number of people in the arts (and wider) community. We want artworks’ that life the profile of the public space with bright and positive imagery for all to enjoy.
