Arts & Culture Strategy
The Town of Gawler recently developed an Arts & Culture Strategy for the community. A range of consultation sessions took place and a survey conducted to find out the community’s ideas, preferences and feedback regarding arts and cultural activities and resources, now and into the future.
The Gawler Arts & Culture Strategy outlines Council’s commitment to the Arts over the next ten years. The Strategy highlights a vision that promotes the Arts as being accessible to everyone, connects people, places and perspectives, and builds a welcoming and vibrant community.
Gawler Public Art Framework
A specific action within the Gawler Arts & Culture Strategy is to ‘Activate urban and recreational spaces through the implementation of a Public Art Policy and encourage investment by business, community and government’. The development of the Gawler Public Art Framework is in response to this action.
The Gawler Public Art Framework provides the Town of Gawler and the broader community with a guide for understanding, developing, commissioning and investing in public art. The Framework includes three complementary sections:
- Public Art Policy.
- Public Art Development Guidelines.
- Gawler Public Art Action Plan 2016 – 2025.
Council sought feedback about the Draft Framework in January, 2017. The result of the public consultation will be presented to Council at a future meeting.
