Public Comment on draft Public Art Masterplan 2020-2030

Closing date: 13 Aug 2020

Alice Springs Town Coun­cil is seek­ing com­mu­ni­ty feed­back on its draft Pub­lic Art Mas­ter­plan 2020 – 2030

A pub­lic art mas­ter­plan is being devel­oped by Coun­cil to define a vision, prin­ci­ples and frame­work to guide Council’s approach to pub­lic art. It builds on exist­ing pub­lic art prac­tices and poli­cies and will help Coun­cil to sup­port the devel­op­ment of a rel­e­vant, diverse and excit­ing col­lec­tion of pub­lic art in Alice Springs that is recog­nised as being of a high stan­dard with­in Aus­tralia and abroad. 

The Mas­ter­plan was devel­oped by review­ing exist­ing doc­u­men­ta­tion, a com­mu­ni­ty sur­vey, and con­sul­ta­tion direct­ly with the Alice Springs com­mu­ni­ty, including:

• one-on-one and small group meet­ings with arts and cul­tur­al agen­cies and inter­est­ed prac­ti­tion­ers and artists

• pub­lic meet­ing open to all inter­est­ed people

• meet­ings with the Pub­lic Art Advi­so­ry Committee

• meet­ing with Alice Springs Town Coun­cil Councillors

• meet­ings with rel­e­vant Alice Springs Town Coun­cil staff.

An action plan, as a sup­ple­men­tary oper­a­tional doc­u­ment, is also being devel­oped to sit under the Pub­lic Art Mas­ter­plan. This doc­u­ment will build on the strate­gic pri­or­i­ties of the mas­ter­plan, and iden­ti­fy the actions nec­es­sary to devel­op out­stand­ing pub­lic art and meet the vision of the Masterplan. 

Feed­back must be sub­mit­ted in writ­ing to astc@​astc.​nt.​gov.​au before COB 13 August 2020.
