$10,000 commission now open for new Multi-Arts Pavilion in Lake Macquarie
Lake Macquarie City Council is supporting artists with a $10,000 commission for new immersive works for the soon-to-be open Multi-Arts Pavilion mima (MAP).
MAP Curator Pippa Budge said this is an exciting opportunity for artists to submit works for MAP’s 360-degree immersive projection space, known as the Cube.
“MAP is an agile space supporting a range of contemporary art practices, from digital projection to mini sculptural works, the opportunities are endless,” Ms Budge said.
“We are seeking expressions of interest for immersive projection artworks that engage with the Cube multi-art space and create unique and memorable experiences for audiences.”
There are three opportunities available for artists:
o $10,000 commission for new work created specifically for the MAP mima Cube space
o Funds towards the development of new work, along with technical assistance/training
o An artist fee to exhibit existing work in the Cube.

About the Lake Macquarie Multi-Arts Pavilion mima (MAP)
MAP will be a high-tech creative canvas, constructed not only to host future art and art media, but to offer an immersive visitor experience. The dual naming of MAP, short for Multi-Arts Pavilion, and mima (pronounced me’ma), an Awabakal word meaning ‘cause to stay’ – signals an intention that this new art venue is a site for conscious intermingling of ancient and emerging cultural expression.
MAP is a purpose-built cultural venue, flexible in form including a hybrid stage and multi-arts space that serve in duality to present national and international contemporary art installations, digital art screenings, performances and music.
