Public art and design

We aim to promote public art using cultural strategies, local development partnerships and collaborative planning.

We have a rich variety of public art which greatly enhances the character and vibrancy of the region. We aim to provide clear procurement and implementation procedures for public art planning and the commissioning of a high quality creative arts programme in South Gloucestershire. All arts projects should meet our key criteria of quality, access and sustainability.

Public art is recognised as important to;

  • developing the cultural identity of South Gloucestershire
  • creating distinction and character in the built environment
  • engaging with local communities and enabling an increased sense of ownership
  • contributing towards a high quality public realm

Advice and guidance for developers on public art policy and practice in South Gloucestershire can found in our Public Art Advice Note or through the Arts Development Officer.
