Public art expands our understanding and appreciation of our cultural and natural heritage, enhances our built environment and creates more meaningful public spaces. Council supports the development and commissioning of a diverse range of artworks in public places that add to the social, cultural, environmental and economic value of the area.
Guidelines have been developed to outline Council’s approach to public art on Council land and provide a clear process for applicants who wish to submit a public art proposal. These guidelines have been informed by the principles of the Cessnock City Council Public Art Policy (2017).
The Public Art Guidelines & Application Form (Council Land and Facilities)
Applicants/artists are advised to contact Council’s Principal Community Planner to discuss their proposal before submitting their application.
