The City has a vision for urban art that is vibrant, contemporary, world-class and distinctly Gold Coast.

We work with artists and private property owners to connect and create innovative works; works that enhance the artistic calibre, diversity, community connection and beauty of our city. We have a wealth of outdoor spaces and we want to celebrate our city with art that inspires, intrigues and surprises.

We have created Urban Art Policy Guidelines and FAQs that support and promote urban artists to create contemporary art that has community benefits, including:

  • graffiti prevention
  • community building
  • placemaking
  • urban regeneration.

We want to support vibrant spaces for people to move through, gather in and celebrate their city.

These guidelines support artists. They tackle the logistics of creating art in the public space by providing:

  • key contacts
  • funding information
  • basic guidelines for the public display of work.

City staff are available to answer any questions to support artists and businesses who are contemplating an urban art project.
