Draft Placemaking and Public Art Policy

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


Overview of the draft Placemaking and Public Art Policy

A draft Placemaking and Public Art Policy has been developed. The draft policy provides an integrated approach to placemaking and public art, updated definitions of key terms; including a description of three types of public art, and alignment with the NSW Government and Tweed Shire Council strategies and plans. The draft policy will replace the existing policy which was adopted in February 2014.

Council plays a key role in the development of public spaces. The draft policy provides a framework for Council to consider placemaking projects and public art in its many forms, whether through direct commissions or in partnership with other tiers of government, the private sector, or through community driven initiatives.

Definitions

Placemaking refers to a collaborative process that helps strengthen the connection between people and the places they share, providing a sense of a collective community spirit, pride and a sense of place.

Public art refers to art in any medium that has been planned and executed with the specific intention of being sited, performed or staged in the public domain.


The draft policy

The draft Placemaking and Public Art Policy provides an integrated approach to placemaking and public art, updated definitions of key terms; including a description of the three types of public art - ephemeral, temporary, and permanent.

It also aligns with the Tweed Shire Council Community Strategic Plan 2017-2027 and Cultural Plan 2018-2021, as well as the NSW Government Architect’s Better Placed policy, Urban Design Guide for Regional NSW, and the NSW Cultural Infrastructure Plan 2025+.

If adopted, this plan will guide Council’s approach to placemaking projects and public art into the future.

Placemaking and public art is widely recognised for its ability to enliven spaces, contribute to a positive sense of place and reinforces a range of social, cultural, economic and heritage values.

Council has endorsed the public exhibition of the draft Placemaking and Public Art Policy and welcomes community feedback from Tuesday 1 October to Monday 11 November 2019.
