A robust and vibrant public art and creative vision is an essential element to achieving Bundaberg Regional Council’s corporate goal to build Australia’s best regional community.
The Public Art Masterplan reflects Council’s continued commitment and vision to guide the development of our thriving arts and cultural sector through a strategic framework and Public Art Program.
This plan outlines a vision for public art in the Bundaberg Region and establishes five key strategies to drive forward a public art program administered by Council in the public spaces it is responsible for managing.
Significantly, it builds on legacy works of the past and responds to new ideas of art, storytelling and interpretation leading to enriched and revitalised public spaces and places.
A testament to the vibrant region in which we live, the plan acknowledges and celebrates the considerable achievements of cultural, creative and artistic activity within our region and defines a pathway for the future.
The Public Art Masterplan aligns with the vision and values of Council's Corporate Plan.
It underpins the aspirations of the Arts + Culture Strategy 2019-2023.
In the context of this masterplan, public art is works installed in a space that is a public asset managed by/or is intended to be managed by Council.
