Calling all Artists - Median Strip Upgrade

Published on Friday, 4 November 2022 at 8:33:01 AM

The purpose of this project is to improve the aesthetics of Meekatharra’s main thoroughfare, creating a more vibrant streetscape.
The Median Strip will be rebuilt with a concrete surface which then receives a spray-on pavers finish.
Three sections will be left blank for artistic murals, displaying the three main pillars of Meekatharra’s heritage:
• Indigenous
• Pastoral
• Mining

The Shire will engage the community to ask for input into the design. Community members can contribute keywords, symbols, stories and/or colours that they feel represent the Indigenous, Pastoral and Mining heritage of Meekatharra. The artist is then tasked with compiling this community feedback into three designs.
The artist is responsible for design only, not for installation.

To get more information, contact the Shire's Community Development & Services Manager Svenja Clare on 08 9980 0600 or or in person at the Shire Office.

You can download the Artist Brief for more information.
