In 2020, Moorabool Shire Council took a significant step forward in cultural development by developing its first Arts and Culture Strategy. A key component of the strategy is the Public Art and Collections Policy that encourages the presence of public art within the Shire. This policy aims to enrich new and existing public spaces with art that reflects stories, themes and issues that are relevant to our community.
Public art is an artwork in any medium, that is displayed outside a gallery and shown in public space. Public art takes many forms, such as sculpture, performance, site-specific installations and digital activations. Works can be permanent or temporary and are displayed in accessible indoor or outdoor public spaces. Public art enhances communities and supports cultural tourism and economic development strategies.
