About the Plan
Council’s Cultural Plan 2020-2030 and Community Strategic Plan 2040 both recognise the key role that public art plays in creating a thriving, innovative, connected and inclusive community; by creating a sense of place, supporting our arts and creative community, providing opportunities to connect with others and enhancing our public spaces.
The Public Art Plan 2022-2026 has four focus areas, with key projects identified in each including:
Wiradjuri Heritage and Culture
- Site specific installation/s of Wiradjuri significance
- Temporary/ephemeral works to be included in Council events
Neighbourhoods, Suburbs and Villages
- Workshop programs with creative outcomes in identified socially disadvantaged SA1 neighbourhoods
- Support the commissioning of public artworks throughout the Wagga Wagga Local Government Area
Explore the City
- Creative lighting/digital works in strategic locations across the city to improve public safety and amenity
- Development of an audio art trail
These works are documented on the Google Maps - Public Art Walking Map - which is a map of public art that already exists in Wagga.
