Public art has the capacity to enliven, invigorate, add value and connection to many of our places across the City of Canada Bay. You may have seen local murals, sculptures, digital art, lighting works, customised street furniture or experienced our spoken word installations adding to the cultural landscape. Each project is developed with local knowledge, in partnership with key stakeholders to create meaningful installations and activities.
