Re:ACTIVATE offers a unique opportunity for local and emerging artists to have their public artwork vision become a reality and be produced on a large-scale by SCAPE Public Art.
Junior & Senior Aspiring Artists
A record number of entries were received for SCAPE Public Art’s 2019 Re:ACTIVATE Aspiring Artists competition, with the winning five to be exhibited in central Christchurch this spring.
The winning students will have their artworks produced and installed for the first time at Hack Circle, on the corner of Cashel and High streets, as part of SCAPE Public Art’s annual Season festival that runs from 5 October to 16 November.
We offer this opportunity annually as an open call to young artists (junior and senior students) to respond to a brief and provide designs to create unique public artworks within the central city Re:ACTIVATE Junior (year 1-8 ) and Re:ACTIVATE Senior (year 9-13) Public Art Exhibition is open to anyone 18 years old and under. Submitted designs are shortlisted for exhibition and up to two designs in each category will be produced for SCAPE’s six-week season with the support and sponsorship of Lewis Bradford Consulting Engineers.
SCAPE Public Art offers emerging artists and designers the opportunity to learn about production process and have their public art realised on a large scale in public space.
Re:ACTIVATE was initiated by SCAPE in 2012 to offer emerging to mid-career artists an opportunity to learn about the essential elements of public art delivery.
This programme is open every two years and will be available again in 2020.
