We challenge the creative community to inspire, provoke and delight with an immersive and interactive mural that is dynamic and Instagram worthy.
We are looking for creatives who think outside the box and understand that installation art engages you on multiple levels, activating your senses to experience art in a new way The focus should be on how the mural invites the public to engage with the art Does it make you want to take a photo with you or someone in the art? Is it visually appealing and therefore something you would want to upload to Instagram for the world to see.
The Grey Street Laneway that connects with the Spring Street Carpark building in Downtown Tauranga presents an opportunity for creatives to develop a creative, immersive mural for the wall space that will transform this dark wall and the overall laneway
All submissions must be in by Friday 27th November.
IDEAS TO INSPIRE YOU
WINGS TO FLY AND THE LOVE SEAT
Arguably two of the most recognisable street art works in Tauranga, Wings to Fly and Love Seat have been photo-op hot-spots since they were created in 2015 and 2017 by artists Millie Newitt and Tara Fowler. These love notes to Tauranga add a bright pop of colour at the beginning of the Strand and in Masonic Park inviting viewers to engage with the artworks by standing in between the wings for a unique photo or sitting on the love seat for cupid to shoot her arrow down at them. We challenge you to create a mural in the Grey Street laneway which will become just as popular and recognisable!
