Public Art Policy

The Public Art Policy is a set of guiding principles for the commissioning of public art that reflects the key issues identified in Council of the City of Gold Coast’s vision, plans and strategic priorities.

The objectives of the policy are to maintain a high standard of public art through:

  • the establishment of consistent and effective processes for the procurement and decommissioning of public art, which are appropriate to the budget, function, social impact and expected longevity of the piece
  • the implementation of a whole-of-Council approach to the commissioning of public art on the Gold Coast ensuring the highest possible standards in both process and outcome
  • the identification of opportunities for the commissioning of public art by Council, the private sector and other stakeholders - including property developers, State Government and independent organisations - that contribute to creating a profile of the Gold Coast as an important world city
  • the strengthening of the Gold Coast cultural economy through the employment, training and provision of professional development opportunities for local artists, designers and project managers
  • the provision of opportunities, through public art projects, for the celebration and interpretation of the Gold Coast’s heritage and contemporary culture for both residents and visitors.
