What is 'Statues For Legends'?

Statues For Legends is a co-funding grant program to bring art and culture into communities, led by public artists Gillie and Marc.

Why do statues matter?
By bringing attention to local heroes, historical figures, incredible human, animal or mythical legends through the power of public art, the stories of these legends can enrich localities and cities where they can live on forever to help inspire, educate, entertain, celebrate, and foster community spirit.

How does it work?

To help make this a reality, Statues For Legends will be co-funding every project by way of a program, ensuring every community can see their legend come to life. 

What is a grant?

A co-funding grant will provide communities, businesses, or individuals the ability to create a public sculpture at a fraction of the cost. There are over $2M in co-funding opportunities available, made possible by the artists passion to bring more public art to the people.

Why are you asking for nominations?

There is power in people, and we are here to work with communities. We will work alongside local council, government, or with stakeholders to help create popular public monuments and strive for qualified nominated figures to come to fruition.

Who can I nominate?

You can nominate anyone, or anything. Be it a mythical or folklore figure, animal, local figurehead, local hero, sporting star or a pillar of the community. The only criteria is that they need to be relevant to your community.
