Artist pool

The Metro Tunnel Creative Program is inviting Victorian creative practitioners to register for its Artist Pool.

About the Artist Pool

The Artist Pool will be a database used to identify suitable creatives and artists for future Metro Tunnel Creative Program commissions for temporary art opportunities, interpretation pieces and activations.

The Artist Pool will be one of the primary methods for inviting artists to apply for future Metro Tunnel Creative Program opportunities from June 2020 to December 2022 and potentially beyond.

  • Hoarding artworks
  • Painted murals
  • Graphic and creative signage and wayfinding
  • 2D and 3D site activations and installations
  • Pop up events and performances
  • Written pieces for online and other publishing
  • Photographic artworks and photographic documentation of projects.

Registrations for the Artist Pool will be open from 8am Monday 15 June to 11.59pm Monday 13 July.
