Help shape the future of public art in Ferntree Gully Village.

We have embarked on a public art planning process for Ferntree Gully Village, and would like your feedback.

Public art can help to:

  • improve community safety through pedestrian walkways
  • increase connections for Ferntree Gully residents, visitors and traders
  • beautify and create interest in Ferntree Gully
  • encourage foot traffic through the shopping precinct
  • attract and retain businesses.

Creating a plan

Feedback from the community and the local arts sector will inform the development of the Ferntree Gully Reclaiming Public Spaces Plan.

The Ferntree Gully Reclaiming Public Space Plan will aim to:

  • outline the community vision and goals for public art
  • identify key opportunities for projects and initiatives
  • encourage community involvement.

This plan will:

  • identify the key sites, themes, styles and scope of public artworks for the village
  • include budget and proposed timelines

A number of projects identified as 'quick wins' will be delivered in June 2022.
