Chance To Dress The Drum Theatre Façade

City of Greater Dandenong < 1 mins read
Drum Theatre Dandenong

Greater Dandenong City Council is calling for expressions of interest for the Inside Out Public Art Commission Project. It is an exciting opportunity for artists to create a visually captivating, site-specific artwork that will reveal the Drum Theatre’s inner creativity on its outer shell.

Artists, art collectives or designers are invited to propose concepts for a large-scale artwork that will evoke a sense of wonder and curiosity, pushing the boundaries of traditional art forms. The temporary artwork is expected to become a landmark in its own right, while visually telling a story of the engaging experiences and vibrant programming that take place inside the theatre.

The Drum Theatre opened in 2006 retaining the Lonsdale Street façade of the Dandenong Town Hall (originally opened in 1890), featuring the iconic red ‘drum’ at the core of the theatre building, showcasing an outstanding marriage of old and new architecture.

Each year the Drum hosts more than 200 performances and events for over 40,000 visitors and is one of our city’s most recognisable cultural arts venues.

Expressions of interest are open until 3 June 2024.
