About The Byron Bike Rack Project

Create sculptural bike racks for the town of Byron - Enter your designs in ‘Byron Bike Rack Project’ competition

Calling all Northern Rivers artists, designers, artistic teams… and bike riders!

Dream up a set of sculptural bike racks for the town of Byron and you could be funded $20k to bring the project to life and see them used in our town.

Byron Bike Rack Project is a community initiative by local independent brewery Stone & Wood, in partnership with the Byron Shire Council. Encouraging the locals of Byron Bay and its visitors to ride, rather than drive, the competition aims to create a set of public art installations that are functional and look good for the town of Byron!


Entries close: 29 January 2018
