A range of permanent, semi-permanent or temporary artworks are commissioned through the variety of programs offered by the City of Joondalup, including the Mural Arts, Artist in Residence, Public Art, and the Inside-Out Billboard Projects.
To guide the delivery of public art projects that contribute to creating a sense of place, promote the expression of local identity, and reflect on the shared values of the community, the City adopted a Public Art Policy on all refurbishments of City-owned properties or new developments where the overall project costs are over $1,000,000 in 2017.
In addition, Western Australian, national and international artists are commissioned to produce a new artworks for City’s art collection. In most instances commissions are procured through a public call out to artists for their Expression of Interest. Proposals are considered against selection criteria that are unique to each call out.
