Council has been listening loud and clear when it comes to the community’s desire for more public art.

We are eager to get your incredible projects off the ground, but to do so, Council must first adopt a Public Art Policy. Councillors adopted a draft policy at the June Council Meeting and now we’re calling on the community to provide its feedback.

We know how important public art is – creating a unique way to enhance people’s experiences of, and encouraging greater interaction with, public spaces.

Public art can express community values, enhance our environment, transform a landscape, heighten our awareness, or question our assumptions.

Placed in public sites, this art is there for everyone, a form of collective community expression.

We know there is incredible desire for artworks, but public spaces are important community resources and public art should be carefully considered to ensure a positive impact is achieved.

That’s why our Public Art Policy will guide Council and Councillors in future decision-making when it comes to implementing public art.
