We need your help to make the arts a bigger part of life in the City of Kalamunda

Consultation closed: 30 November 2020

The City of Kalamunda is seeking feedback on the draft Public Art Master Plan.

Earlier this year, we consulted with community to identify the vision and key themes for public art in the City.

Using this feedback, the draft Master Plan has been developed along with its vision and key themes.

The vision of the Public Art Master Plan is to provide locally relevant artworks that:

  • are innovative, contemporary, and of a standard that can be proudly shared globally;
  • reinforce the unique qualities of the City of Kalamunda as a whole and individual areas and suburbs;
  • reflect contemporary social culture within the City of Kalamunda;
  • inform and engage the community with Aboriginal culture and heritage in the City;
  • actively engage the community as onlookers and participants in the creative story;
  • contribute to city-wide urban attractiveness;
  • improve the quality of the City’s built environment; and
  • support business and tourism by providing new and unique experiences.

The Master Plan also proposes four (4) overarching themes in approaching artwork. These themes are:

  1. Natural Environment: bushland, forest, geology, native flora, wildlife, parklands, walking trails, and paths, care of natural resources;
  2. Noongar history and culture: waterways, the story of Kalamunda, Welcome to Country, Aboriginal astronomy;
  3. Early Settlers: farming, horticulture, railways; and
  4. The past, present and future of industry (industrial areas only).

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    Public Art is an important part of the City of Kalamunda’s built and natural environment.

    In 2019 the City of Kalamunda adopted a Public Art Policy. The Policy is to ensure 1% of the project’s cost, from all new developments over $500,000 (up to a maximum of $250,000), is contributed to Public Art. The contribution will form part of the building development or as a monetary contribution to the City of Kalamunda Public Art Fund.

    The City is now developing a Public Art Master Plan to identify potential themes, sites and forms for artworks to be commissioned.

    As a member of the community, we invite you to complete this 10-15 minute survey to identify the community’s vision (past, present and future) for what Public Art in the City could look like.
