Rhodes Peninsula Arts Plan

In 2012 the City of Canada Bay adopted the Rhodes Peninsula Arts Plan. Milne & Stonehouse and Guppy Associates were engaged to develop the plan to provide Council, developers and the Rhodes communities with direction and guidance for the delivery of Public Art across the Rhodes Peninsula.

The Arts Plan identifies locations for Public Art including the foreshore, in parks, playgrounds and other areas of open space, in the town square, community centre and other places used by the community. The adoption of this plan triggers a series of Public Art projects in the peninsular rolling out. The development of the Arts Plan has been informed by community consultation and participation.This has included surveys, focus groups and interviews with Rhodes residents and other interested members of the community.

'It is important that the Arts Plan results in art that is enjoyed by the local community both old and new. Creating a dialogue about public art, its many forms and its role in Rhodes is an important part of this.' Greg Stonehouse 2012, Milne & Stonehouse.

Enabling art projects to be initiated early in the planning process is central to the Arts Plan. A number of projects are already in development, see below. Further projects are planned over the life of the planning process and beyond. It is expected that projects will develop as sites, facilities and infrastructure come on line within the planning context.
