Festival Of Place

dancers at Forum Q

A continuation of the celebration of all things public space, the State Government's Festival of Place provided councils funding to reimagine streets as places for people.

We received $500,000 in 2022 to continue the work we started with On Q.

Campbelltown's Festival of Place - Open Streets Program utilised roads and accessible public spaces within the Campbelltown (On Q) and Ingleburn CBDs to produce a total of seven exciting events attracting people into the City Centres.

These activations and events:

Vibrant art on display

You can check out the public art and murals on display by:

Danielle Mate's Raw Undoings, near Ralph's Chemist on Carberry Lane, is an abstract perspective of Country with a focus on the deep crevices within the landscape.

Jason Wing's Three Mobs, painted on the Dumaresq Street wall of 7Eleven, celebrates the diversity of people across the Macarthur region, represented by an entanglement of rainbow serpents.

Spinning the Fire Sutra I, based on the Buddhist fire sermon of the same name, was painted in Anzac Lane by Savanhdary Vongpoothorn.

All artworks have been created in collaboration with local businesses and property owners and were funded by the NSW Government Festival of Place grant program and the CBD Revitalisation Program grant.
