Expressions of Interest for multiple mural sites are now closed.
Port Macquarie-Hastings Council is inviting artists and creatives to apply to design and install a number of murals across our region. Recent funding secured through the NSW Governments Graffiti Management Grant fund will enable 5 repeatedly impacted sites to receive a site-specific artwork installation.
Stage 1 of the program now closed.
Stage 2 of the program now closed.
In May 2022, Council endorsed the Graffiti Vandalism Management Policy that provides an effective framework to prevent, address, reduce and mitigate against graffiti.
Graffiti vandalism has a direct and immediate impact on the community by reducing the social amenity of public spaces, creating visual pollution and leading to increased fear of personal security.
Port Macquarie-Hastings Council have found the installation of site-specific artworks a highly effective/successful tool in its bid to deter offenders and improve our streetscapes across the region. The Report, Remove and Reward initiative is another tool in the war against graffiti.
Proudly funded by the NSW Government as part of the 2022 Graffiti Management Grant Program.
There will be opportunity to apply for future projects in this space. We will be calling for submissions later in the year. Make sure you are subscribed to our iCreate newsletter to stay up to date!
