The full vision, and how it guides City operations, is detailed in the Strategic Community Plan.
The Public Art Strategy 2018 - 2022 builds on a number of the City’s goals and strategies to deliver social, economic, environmental and cultural benefits for the community. Public art plays a key role in urban renewal, place making, urban design and tourism. It contributes to Subiaco being a place where people want to be.
The purpose of the Public Art Strategy is to provide a clear outline of the City’s approach to public art. Building on the foundation of an already significant collection, the City aims to use public art to create a sense of place; infusing qualities of diversity, vibrancy, character, creativity and imagination into daily life.
If you plan to place art on your building in a place where it can be viewed from the public realm (such as a mural on an exterior wall), you will need to contact the City to be sure your work fits with the objectives the community has identified in previous consultation.
The Public Art Strategy is being updated in 2022 and your feedback about the strategy is welcome. Email email@example.com.
