Artwork Opportunity – Expressions of Interest

The City of Adelaide is inviting Expressions of Interest (EOI) from established artists / collaborative artist teams to create a unique integrated ‘entry’ artwork at the Quentin Kenihan Inclusive Playspace that will act as a focal point to invite visitors to come inside and play.

It is envisioned that the artwork will bring a dynamic new sensory experience, designed to inspire and engage visitors. The QKIP Gateway public art opportunity will provide a focal point and threshold experience at the main entrance to the playspace, creating a unique arrival experience and an invitation to come inside and play.

For more information and to apply, visit the City of Adelaide website here.

Expressions of Interest close: 5 pm, 31 August 2020



Engagement Update: August 2020

The design is complete for the Quentin Kenihan Inclusive Playspace in Rymill Park / Murlawirrapurka. The playspace will be a safe environment for children of all abilities to enjoy. Construction will start in August 2020 and is expected to finish by December 2020.

The play equipment includes a wheelchair trampoline, sound and sensory garden, water play, swings and a carousel.

Other features include:

  • accessible toilets and a changing place
  • accessible paths
  • barbecues, shelter and seats
  • fully fenced playspace

The playspace was developed by WAX design, with ideas and feedback from the community, members of the City of Adelaide’s Access and Inclusion Panel and friends and family of Quentin Kenihan.
