Local artists interested in having their work displayed as a paste-up, and businesses looking to host an artwork are brought together through this program, bringing joy to the community who find the works in their local area. 

The Paste Ups Program installs artworks across the municipality that reflect the unique identities of our townships and their communities. The program also works toward creating public spaces that are unique and enticing and offer many opportunities to engage in arts and cultural activities for the entire community.   

Mayor Cr Rod Ward said public art programs such as this assisted to reconnect communities to themselves and others, as travel and cultural experiences once again thrive post-pandemic. 

“I look forward to seeing what our thriving arts community puts forward through this program,” Cr Ward said.

“Local businesses are lucky to have this opportunity to re-ignite our urban spaces visually.” 

This year’s theme is ‘creating moments of joy in everyday life’ and artists must respond to this theme in their expression of interest.  

Local businesses also have the opportunity to participate by hosting a paste up artwork as part of the 2023 program. Businesses must identify a brick or concrete wall in good repair and a prominent location, with locations across the shire encouraged to apply. 

Applications for artists and businesses close on Sunday 5 March.
