Bringing public art to life at Green Square: shaping an urban neighbourhood


WHEN: 6-9pm – 6 Jun 2017



This event will be held at The Commune, 901 Bourke St, Waterloo.

The industrial heart of Sydney’s south is transforming into a new, vibrant neighbourhood. Creative and cultural facilities, new homes along with shops and open, green spaces are shaping the urban renewal of Green Square.

As part of the City Art program, several public artworks are underway that will help shape the area’s character and contribute to community life.

Join us for an evening discussion with those who have been instrumental in the long-term thinking and development of public art projects in Green Square.

We’ll explore the benefits and challenges of bringing art into public spaces. Our guest speakers will discuss how we can integrate public art into the urban environment and create inspiring places for everyone to enjoy.
