Public Art Action Plan

Consultation has concluded

Final Stage Consultation

We are seeking final feedback on the draft Public Art Action Plan 2019 - 2022 prior to its presentation to Council for endorsement in August 2019. The new Public Art Action Plan 2019 – 2022, which will be aligned with Council’s 2017 - 2023 Cultural Strategy, will replace the current Public Art Policy and Action Plan 2014-2019.

Background

A Public Art Discussion Paper was developed in February 2019 to generate community and Council conversation about public art planning in the City. The resulting Council input, feedback from the Public Art Round Table, two community forums and a stakeholder workshop, along with online submissions has helped to shape the new Action Plan.

Your feedback will inform the final draft of the Public Art Action Plan that will be provided to Council for endorsement in August 2019.

    • Hossein Valamanesh, Contemporary Visual Artist
    • Dr Katherine Arguile, Visual Arts Reviewer for The Advertiser and Arts Writer for InDaily

    The Panel discussion touched on the important role public art has to play in shaping the City by the creation of community stories through art; the role of public art to enable people to engage with arts and creativity and provide an attractive reason to stay in a city, encouraging diversity and many voices in the public realm, supporting social cohesion; and how Adelaide is a place that supports artists to evolve their practice.

    A workshop was also held as part of the forum, with 30+ community members brainstorming the big goals for public art. Emerging priorities included: ambition to be a public art destination and continuing our reputation as a global creative city; the need to be taking more risks with art; the role of place, local talent and international connections; supporting artists; focus on First Nations; partnerships; and the role of artists as central and leading.

    The information from the workshop, along with community feedback through this current consultation, will assist in the development of the Public Art Action Plan.
