Street Art Working Group

Purpose

The Street Art Activation Working Group provides advice related to recommended street art initiatives in Townsville. The recommendations made by the Manager, Gallery Services, are informed by outcomes set within the Street Art Activation Framework.

The purpose of this Street Art Activation Framework, endorsed by Townsville City Council in 2015, is to provide a breakdown of the opportunities for street art activity to occur in Townsville, and outline a clear and thoroughly considered path forward to enable Townsville to become a leader in this field in terms of regional Australian centres.

The Framework sets clear definitions by which the development of street art in Townsville will be undertaken, as well as defining key Cultural, Economic, Social, Recreational, and Urban Planning objectives of street art activation.

Membership

Council is seeking interested members of the public with relevant experience and knowledge, including artists, law enforcement personnel, and representatives from institutions, government and community organisations who have leadership experience in street/public art, community and youth engagement, and/or business.  Members of the Street Art Activation Working Group will have a demonstrated commitment to the enhancement of our public spaces and community through the activation of street art.

Membership is voluntary.
