Media release - 2 January 2018

Campbelltown City Council will work with local artists, residents and businesses to develop and deliver a trail of public art across the CBD, using spaces and buildings as a canvas to ‘reimagine’ the city. 

The project has been made possible with the support of a Federal Government Stronger Communities Program grant of almost $20,000, and matching Council funding, and will provide artists with an opportunity to exhibit their work and local businesses with an economic boost. 

Council will collaborate with the community on the project to develop a theme for the design of the street art, and identify suitable locations for its installation within the CBD. 

Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr George Brticevic, said the importance of reinvigorating the city’s CBD was highlighted during the extensive public consultation undertaken as part of Council’s Community Strategic Plan. 

“Our community is calling for more vibrant and active CBDs – places where art and culture are celebrated, tourism opportunities are promoted, and where people simply feel good,” he said. 

“This exciting project responds to that feedback. 

“Council will work hand-in-hand with the community, ensuring they feel connected to arts and cultural activities in the CBD, and are given the opportunity to play a part in the creation of public areas which attract both locals and visitors to our city. 

“Business participation in the project is also vital, with the extra activity in the CBD also providing economic benefits, supporting the growth of local businesses which contribute to our city’s prosperity and vibrancy.”
