Public Art Policy
PUBLIC ART

Tamworth Regional Council (TRC) recognises the importance of public art in building community identity and is seeking feedback on the draft public art policy and input from the region’s residents to develop a strategy for its public art program.

“Public Art” is art in any media planned with the intention of being staged in the physical public domain, usually outdoor and accessible to all.

Council is starting a two-stage six-month process which will establish the guidelines for how it will deliver the community’s vision of public art across the region. The first step is to seek feedback on the draft public art policy and then put together a public art strategy.



The draft Tamworth Regional Council Public Art Policy aims to ensure Council’s commitment to public art and can be download from the home page



Written submissions are invited from members of the public in relation to a proposed Public Art Policy and should be addressed to: The General Manager, Tamworth Regional Council, PO Box 555, Tamworth NSW 2340. Submissions will need to be received by 5pm Friday 18 September 2015. For further information please contact Bridget Guthrie (Director, Tamworth Regional Gallery and Powerstation Museum on 6767 5249)
