About public art
Public art reflects and enriches our society and adds meaning to place and uniqueness to our communities. We have a long history of supporting public art through developer contributions, private and public commissions, street art and ephemeral projects.
The public art program creates new and unique ways for people to engage in the experience of being outdoors and revitalises public spaces and the built neighbourhood.
We support all contemporary art practices of emerging and established artists through integration of works in:
- public realm civic projects
- programming and activation of ephemeral (temporary) projects
- street art programs
- developer contributions.
