Artists can contribute to the public realm in many ways, the outcomes of which may notalways be readily defined as art. Public art projects may aesthetically enhance anenvironment; be utilitarian; respond to a particular site through material, form andconcept; educate and comment on issues and events; commemorate the past; and muchmore. It is free to observe as there are no class or social barriers. It can become a familiarfeature in the fabric of the city that generates a sense of ownership, a sense of place, andhelp in cultivating community identity. It can offer insights into issues through theresearch and expression of artists, and deliver a range of outcomes through communityinvolvement.For the Public Art Grant 2022, titled ‘The Island That Never Gets Flooded’, Serendipity Arts invited nominations for artists based in Goa to create new interventions and immersions using sites, localities and technology through interdisciplinary practices in the city of Panjim.
