Youth Public Art Projects
Camden Council has a commitment to youth public art, with projects recently completed in public spaces, community and youth facilities and streetscapes in Currans Hill, Harrington Park, Narellan Library and Kirkham Skate Park. Camden Council aims to promote and coordinate the integration of design and public art into the built and natural environments. Public art provides an opportunity for expressing community and cultural identity through developing, preserving and celebrating Camden's history and cultural heritage.

Rotary Park, Camden South
Camden Council is currently working with professional artist, Tim Phibs on a public art project for Rotary Park, Camden South.
A creative workshops with young Camden South residents was held on Saturday 8 September 2018 with Council staff and professional artist, PHIBS. Key themes from the workshop were based around the surrounding environment which will be reflected through the colours, as well as the bold lines and imagery. The design was developed by the young people attending the workshop. Living plants will be incorporated as part of the artwork for this project which will provide a 3D sensory element. This will assist in creating visually attractive urban art for Camden.
