Artscape Corridor Master Plan

The Master Plan provides a detailed description and direction for the future integration of public art through the city, specifically focusing on the coastal edge, Jetty Road Glenelg and Jetty Road Brighton.
It generates ideas, maps opportunities, promotes innovation and encourages exceptional outcomes for integrated public art in Holdfast Bay.

The report provides a methodology to introduce public art that will delight and entertain, appealing to people in a variety of ways through the delivery of four typologies.
The typologies are:

  • Random - a programme of curated events and interventions that are generally temporary, anonymous and quirky.
  • Roam - a public artwork commissioning programme designed to maximise exposure and the impact of the artworks by making them non geographically specific.
  • Event - a programme that encourages, promotes and supports the development of art exhibitions, events, creative celebrations, performances and commemorations.
  • Infra-Art - seeks to promote the inclusion of experienced artists and designers whenever possible into the infrastructure projects to create urban realm projects that are of the highest design standards.
