Public Art Session

The intent of this activity is to provide stakeholders with an opportunity to use art to depict their vision for the future.

Hold this activity at a venue that is conducive to art creation, such as outdoors at a park or beach. Set a broad framework for the presentation of ideas, such as how to incorporate community development ideas within art works. The approach should be informal to encourage creativity and there should be an opportunity for people to explain their ideas and values and how they have depicted these within the art work.

Provide an opportunity for the public to be further involved by soliciting feedback and commentary in a public setting, generating general community feedback on the meaning of the art.

Ensure participants are aware of the nature of the activity they will participate in, so they can dress accordingly, and have agreed in advance to the time frame. Ask participants if they are willing to donate their artwork for public display and commentary.
