Fancy your work featuring on a massive public canvas — 11m by 3m to be exact?

Well this opportunity might just inspire you. The City of Greater Geraldton is on the hunt for a talented artist with a passion for history and culture to create a massive mural in Mullewa’s Callaghan Park.

Mayor Shane Van Styn said he was excited to see what artists came up with to highlight the unique culture of Mullewa.

“There are so many fascinating elements that artists can draw inspiration from including Mullewa’s heritage, importance as an agricultural centre and fame for producing the world’s most stunning and diverse wildflowers,” he said.
