Council’s public art program creates opportunities for artists and the community to explore the creative life of the Northern Beaches in public spaces and places. We work with artists, arts organisations and community groups to develop public art projects that express the identities 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.
