Consultation underway for Art in Public Places Plan


Community consultation has begun on Council’s draft Art in Public Places Plan.

The aim of the plan is to guide the creation of art in public places in a timely, relevant and engaging way.

The plan provides strategic direction for public art in Tairawhiti over the next 20 years, reflecting the people and environment as well as celebrating our rich history.

The plan proposes to diversify our public art and improve decision making processes to become more transparent and fair. It sets responsibilities for developing, deciding on and looking after public art and proposes to employ a part-time coordinator to progress the Art in Public Places programme.

The plan includes key issues affecting the art sector summarised under three themes – working together, decision making and advocacy, and place-making. It provides an objective for each of the key issues along with policies to achieve them.

During consultation, staff will work with primary stakeholders along with the wider public to get feedback.

Funding provided in the current Long Term Plan will not cover the implementation of proposed actions within the plan so council will consider funding for implementation in its next long term plan due to start 2021. Some external funding may also be sought.

The consultation period will run until October 5.
