EOI Box-Ironbark Forest Mural

The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) is seeking a suitably qualified artist to design and install a mural of Chiltern’s Box-ironbark forest on the tallest wall of the Chiltern Recreation and Sports Reserve. This artwork will contribute to community awareness of Box-ironbark forests and the many species it provides habitat for.

DELWP is working in conjunction with partners to raise community awareness of the Regent Honeyeater and the Chiltern Box-ironbark forest, which is an important habitat site for Regent Honeyeaters and many other species.

The project is part of a series of murals and other works designed to raise awareness of and engagement with the Box-ironbark forest and the precious habitat it provides to a diverse range of flora and fauna, with particular attention to key threatened species, such as the Regent Honeyeater.

At this stage the mural commission will keep tracking to the proposed timeline, 50% of the agreed upon budget will be paid to the artist upon signing of the contract and the remainder will be paid upon completion of the mural. Please note that at this stage we do not envisage any delays to the assessment or contract stages but we did predict that there may be delays for the installation of the mural.
