Colouring our Habitat

An innovative community art project designed to connect people to place while creating a sense of wellbeing in the community.

The aim of the project is to explore the many ways in which we engage with public spaces, from a historical, cultural and spatial perspective, and to draw our attention to the unique environment of the North Sydney locale. The artists collaborated with local schools and community groups to develop designs for painting on the selected traffic signal boxes.

Thus each box is unique and tells us a story about the area and its rich offerings.
