What is Urban Art?

Urban Art is a place-based creative practice which enhances built and natural environments and adds value to the urban character and cultural identity of a city.

Urban Art involves a diverse range of art-forms, creative interventions, production methods and design applications for generating both permanent and temporary (including participatory and event-based) outcomes.


Urban art is a broader term than public art and includes creative placemaking collaborations and outcomes such as:

  • Creative / interpretive signage
  • Integrated street furniture design
  • Creative lighting
  • Bespoke playscapes
  • Place activation events
  • Public artworks and installations - temporary or permanent

The city centre summits identified, more vibrancy, street art, public art, creative lighting and activation of Logan's centres as key priorities for the community. The purpose of Draft Urban Art strategy is to develop a framework for the implementation of Urban Art projects in Logan's Activity centres to:

  • improve amenity
  • attract more people to the city centres and;
  • activate disused spaces.

You can view the Draft Urban Art Strategy via the document library on the right. We encourage you to review the strategy and share your thoughts via feedback tab below.

You can provide your feedback on the Draft Urban Art Strategy until 11.45pm 1 July 2021.

    The vision for the Urban Art Strategy will be achieved through five strategic objectives which relate to an action plan.

    The development of the strategy was guided by the development of an extensive consultation process which included:

    • A series of interview with internal Council branches
    • Briefing to Council's elected officials
    • One - one interview with some elected officials
    • A focus group with external artists
    • Interview with external business and arts stakeholders
    • An online survey asking the community to help shape the future of urban art


    Outcomes from the consultation determined:

    • Why Urban Art is important
    • What should Urban Art include
    • Where should we have Urban Art projects
    • How we can deliver Urban Art projects

    The Draft Urban Arts Strategy is now available for the community to review (via the document library) and we are seeking your feedback.

    You can have your say on the draft via the feedback tab above or by clicking here.

    Your opportunity closes on 27 June 2021.

    The City of Logan is increasingly recognised for its vibrant arts and cultural activities. Urban art is one way we
    • Capture imagination
    • Recognise landmarks
    • Start conversations, and
    • Express creativity
    All with the aim to create art that is a source of pride and accessible to all.

    We are excited to evolve our contribution to art in public spaces with the development of the Urban Art Strategy. This strategy will guide urban art in Logan’s Activity Centres.

    By completing the survey below you can help to shape the future of urban art and placemaking in our city.

    Your opportunity to contribute will finish at 11.45 pm Sunday 8 November 2020.
