The aim of Council's Draft Public Art Policy is to:

  • Enhance our shire through promoting public art installations, both temporary and permanent, that reflect our unique character and history.
  • Bring art to everyone and make it accessible throughout the Shire for all residents and visitors to enjoy.
  • Manage our collection wisely through establishing a framework for funding, acquiring, and caring for our public art collection, both now and in the future.

This policy will ensure public art enriches our community while being well-managed for everyone to enjoy. Council is committed to bringing more public art to our community. Benefits of public art include:

  • Strengthening our sense of place as artworks reflect our local heritage and environment, creating a unique identity for our community.
  • Increasing community well-being as public art can be uplifting and thought-provoking, fostering a positive and vibrant atmosphere.
  • Creating conversation as public art can challenge and inspire us, encouraging community dialogue and connection.
