Have your say on public art around the City

Media Release 22 June 2020
Public Art

The City is developing its first Public Art Masterplan to manage current and future public art works and projects, and we would like to know the community’s thoughts and ideas.

We are asking what people like about public art, what benefits it brings to our community and ways we can celebrate our unique local identity. This information will help us create the vision, principles and objectives of the Masterplan.

The City values public art as a means of acknowledging the identity and history of the community, enhancing the environment and contributing to a sense of place, reinforcing our vision as a ‘City of active places and beautiful spaces’.

The Masterplan will include all suburbs and precincts within the City to identify:

  • Local stories, personalities and features of places that are meaningful and contribute to a sense of identity and community
  • Specific local opportunities and challenges that influence the kinds of public art outcomes that are achievable and appropriate in particular areas
  • Setting priorities for delivery of public art projects and programs.

The survey opens on Monday 22 June and is available online or in hard copy at South Perth and Manning libraries. Stakeholder and community engagement initially began in March this year, but was postponed due to COVID-19.

All feedback and data received will be used to develop the draft Masterplan. Feedback closes on Monday 27 July 2020, for more information or to take part in the survey visit Your Say South Perth.
