State: Townsville, QLD
Stockland’s Commercial Property Development team contracted Zest Events to project manage the public art / community engagement component of the redevelopment of Stockland Townsville. 20 totem poles were designed and installed along the busiest façade of the building with the intention of being the base for a public artwork created by an artist and the local community. Zest ran an invited tender to find the right artist for the project, award winning artist Amanda Feher was selected to run workshops with local the local primary Aitkenvale State School.
Students worked to the theme ‘My Townsville/What Townsville means to me’. Bronze sculptures of their designs were permanently installed on the totems. The project is source of pride to the students and school and is appreciated by the community at large.
