Creative hoardings

Creative hoardings

Street art of a different kind

To help enliven the city’s streets, we created the creative hoardings program. This program aims to transform the visual impact of construction sites. It also provides opportunities for artists to showcase their work on a large scale in very visible locations.

Developers with construction sites in high traffic areas must cover their hoardings in art by a living Australian artist, or historical images relevant to the area where the hoarding is located.

Developers can commission their own artist, or they can use artworks licensed by the City of Sydney, free of charge.

Take a look at some of the creative hoarding artworks licensed by the City.

If you’d like to hear about when we’re calling out for artwork submissions, or for any other opportunities we have for artists, sign up to our enews list below.

If you’re a developer, here’s the information you need.
