Council’s public art program creates opportunities for artists and the community to celebrate the creative life of the Northern Beaches in public spaces and places. We partner with artists, arts organisations and community groups to develop art projects that express the identity of the Northern Beaches, enhance the natural and built environment and explore our community’s unique culture and heritage.
The Public Art Policy and Guidelines provide a clear framework of principles that express Council’s commitment to the vital role of public art in the overall strategic planning of the Northern Beaches.
Connected Through Creativity 2029, the Northern Beaches Arts and Creativity Strategy, identifies a series of opportunities and approaches to creating public art that celebrates the cultural heritage and extraordinary natural environment of the Northern Beaches, ranging from community based artworks in village centres, to iconic new major art projects along the Coast Walk. Find out more about our current creative opportunities.

Art along the Coast Walk
The Northern Beaches Coast Walk, stretching from Manly to Palm Beach, connects and celebrates some of Sydney’s most iconic beaches and surf breaks, ocean rock pools, aquatic reserves, surf lifesaving clubs, headlands, lagoons, archaeological sites and places of significant local heritage.
This spectacular coastline is a unique and memorable walking experience for visitors and locals alike and we are developing creative opportunities to explore our beach culture, local history, the spectacular natural environment and Aboriginal heritage along the Coast Walk through a public art trail.
Council offers a range of opportunities to get involved in both temporary and permanent public art projects. Sign up to hear about Expressions of Interest and other creative opportunities.
