Draft Public Art Policy

This consultation has concluded.

*This consultation is now closed*

Throughout history, art has been in the public realm in various forms and is the human link that defines a culture.  Within our own city public art connects our local community through unique stories that add to our local culture, creating a ‘sense of place’.

Local Government holds responsibilities for planning and design of public spaces including a regulatory role in managing planning approvals. Through a best practice strategy of commissioning public art, we can work towards a contemporary public art collection that is progressive, innovative, highly visible and embraces a variety of stimulating approaches, mediums and scales.

The draft Public Art Policy has been created as part of a placemaking approach to liveability so our open spaces, parks, and streetscapes are more attractive for our community. Pre-consultation with key groups and individuals has occurred in the past month.

The draft Public Art Policy and Guidelines are now available for comment.

Consultation closes on 8 November.

We look forward to your feedback and suggestions. Contact the Community Project Officer on 8408 1173 for more information.

  • Will there be consultation with the Council's security officer in regard to art site location and its possible impediments to security monitoring devices? Will there be consultation with Emergency Response teams or specific site management in regard to minimising any blocking of emergency access or egress of coucnil sites?

    The Public Art Technical Working Group will assess all proposed locations of public art and a risk assessment will be considered regarding these locations. If a site is deemed a potential risk then other staff may be consulted before approval is granted; this could include the security officer and risk officer. Thanks for your question!
