Mitcham Art Advisory Group - Expressions of Interest

An exciting new City of Mitcham Community and Public Art Initiative!

Council is establishing a Mitcham Art Advisory Group (MAAG). We now seek Expressions of Interest from people who live or work within the City of Mitcham with a passion and knowledge of community and public art for membership of this group. The role of this group is:

  • MAAG is not a decision making body, however their recommendations will guide Council on decisions relating to public art
  • Recommend an annual public art programme for Council’s consideration and funding 
  • Assess and provide recommendations on applications for Council’s annual Public and Community Art Grant of $25,000 
  • Provide recommendations to Council on significant or contentious public/community art proposals


The MAAG will consist of 7 community members who have demonstrated interest/experience in community/public art, or other relevant skills and experience. The group will meet a minimum of two times a year or more as decided by the Group. Membership on MAAG does not attract an allowance.

Selection Criteria for the Mitcham Art Advisory Group

A Selection Panel will assess all applications against the criteria. Short-listed candidates will be invited to an interview with the Selection Panel, at which the motivation, cultural fit and ability to foster and promote public/community art in the City of Mitcham will be assessed. Please address the selection criteria:

  1. Strong involvement and/or strong interest in public or community art
  2. Strong community networks and linkages in the area of public/community art
  3. Other relevant skills/experience which would complement/benefit MAAG
  4. Ability to constructively participate in an advisory capacity
