Create a Place - Public Art Project

Promoting South Australian artists within our Salisbury region.

Create a Place is an exciting project to increase our awareness of public art within our community.

Artists and venues come together to create a space that adds colour and liveliness to our region through the use of paintings and mosaics.

Once registered through an expression of interest application for both venues and artists, a small public art panel will match venues with artists that best reflects the needs of the spaces.

Artists will be provided with an artist brief specific to the site chosen and final drawings will need to be submitted for final approval.

So far we have had several successful ‘Create a Place’ spaces around our region and we want to continue to grow our public art projects.

Expression of Interest

We are currently looking for expressions of interest for the following location:

Tregoning Green Handball Wall, Salisbury Park – Artist Brief Tregoning Green

Tregoning Green is a neighbourhood play space stretching the length of Carlingford Drive. We are encouraging artists to be artistic and creative with artwork that will wrap around the handball wall and spill down onto the court surface. We want to see original designs capturing colour and vibrancy, that would appeal to a wide audience and would encourage gender neutral designs and colours.

Expressions of Interest can be sent to arts@salisbury.sa.gov.au and close Wednesday 12 October 2022 at 5pm (ACDT).

If you have a location or venue that would make a great 'blank canvas' please click here for a 'Venue Expression of Interest' application. Examples of previous locations have included rainwater tanks, large brick walls and underpasses.

Marketing and promotion

All completed masterpieces are displayed on our Discover Salisbury website.

We encourage any artists from South Australia to register their interest to take part in what we hope will become a legacy for our region.
