Public art, both permanent and ephemeral, is planned to invigorate Caloundra following council’s endorsement of the Caloundra Public Art Plan at its October Ordinary Meeting.

The plan provides a curatorial framework and a three-year activation program, titled Place2.

It will guide public art development and creative activation in Caloundra’s public spaces.

The curatorial vision was inspired by Caloundra’s:

  • rich cultural and contemporary history
  • aspirations for the future
  • its urban heart
  • the unique qualities of the natural environment, and
  • the character of the residents.

The three curatorial themes that will guide public art outcomes are:

  • City of beaches – revolution, reflection and respite
  • Embedded in nature – bush to beach.
  • Gateways and connections – I See, I See, I See the Sea!

The Place2 program will seek funding to deliver public art activities themed around a Place2Paint, Place2Play, Place2Connect, Place2Discover and Place2Reflect.

The Caloundra Public Art Plan 2018[2055KB] was developed as an action of the Caloundra Centre Master Plan (2017) and is in line with the vision of the Sunshine Coast Arts Plan 2018-2038.
