About Us


The City of Adelaide has a justified reputation as a clean, attractive and accessible city centre. It takes great pride in its distinctive character and Park Lands. Adelaide has a strong tradition of social reform and has highly regarded educational and medical institutions, a vigorous arts sector and internationally renowned festivals and events.

ARTS AND CULTURE
The role of arts and culture, both historic and contemporary in city environments has long been recognised as an important part of a city's character. The arts are a product of creativity and take many forms including performing arts (dance, music, theatre, opera, puppetry etc) literary arts (poetry, creative writing, film, new media etc) visual arts (painting, sculpture, glass, ceramics) and the applied arts (craft, design, architecture, jewelry).

PUBLIC ART
The first Adelaide City Council Public Art Policy Watch This Place was endorsed 5 March 2001. In 2008, the Policy underwent a detailed review to reflect current public art issues, and align with Council's Strategic Framework of creating Unique Heritage, Park Lands and City Design and a Culturally Vibrant City.

PUBLIC ART POLICY: 2008-2013 FIVE YEAR PUBLIC ART PLAN
The Five Year Public Art Plan provides Council with a robust, flexible and strategic framework for the City's annual public art commissioning program. The Plan sets out priorities for art works in the City and Park Lands that can be achieved in conjunction with future capital works and development opportunities.
