Bundaberg Region Public Art Master Plan

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

Bundaberg Regional Council is currently undertaking a review of our Public Art Policy.

As part of this review, we are planning to develop a 5-year Master Plan that will embrace best practice industry standards, as well as creating great places for our community through Public Art.

The objectives of the Public Art Master Plan are to enable Council to:

  • understand, document and analyse the historical commitment to public art in the region;
  • assess the existing public art collection;
  • determine community demand for public art investment;
  • recommend potential themes and/or stories of significance;
  • present a master plan of placemaking, temporary and permanent public artworks with suggestions for location and stories of significance based on Council owned and/or controlled assets or areas only

The first step is to conduct a number of ideation workshops for the community to have their say.

If you have ever had an idea for a public art project in the broader Bundaberg Region and would like to have a say in how our community could explore the positive impact of public art in your neighbourhood, come along to one of our three community consultation workshops with facilitator Shelley Pisani from The Ideas Distillery.


ONLINE SURVEY

What is Public Art?

Public Art is created for public spaces or facilities that are accessible to the public. It can be permanent or temporary in nature. It can include but is not limited to:

  • Site-specific digital art, sculptures, installations or murals
  • Temporary installations or performances located in a public space
  • Artworks produced through community participation
  • Integration of art into architecture and urban planning

We have some great public art in our region – but there is certainly room for more. Bundaberg Regional Council want to be strategic about how public art is delivered in the future to ensure, high quality works that reflect our region’s people, stories and places. We would love to get your feedback. We will be conducting workshops with our First Nations communities early in 2022 and then developing a Discussion Paper for further feedback.

We are seeking your input for “blue sky” projects – the ones that shout out who we are, to the world in a way that is appropriate for our region. So, the questions are based on the fictitious (but possible) scenario below. We appreciate your time in sharing your ideas.

Please read the scenario and give your ideas here or fill out the survey below.

    SCENARIO

    Bundaberg Regional Council has received major arts funding as well as the support of a local philanthropist. We have a large budget that can only be spent on public art. We can plan a large-scale project or series of projects that can roll out over the next 12 months. We are not limited by where it goes other than needing to be within the Bundaberg Region. We are not limited to what it could be made from or how it is made. It could be permanent or temporary in nature – or a combination of both. We want this to be something that reflects something important to the community and a project our region can be proud of. With no limitations, we would love to hear your ideas.
