Public art and creative outcomes provide a platform for expressing local values, innovation, memory, meaning, creativity and beauty in each neighbourhood. Public art and creative outcomes in Village Precinct Projects and Better Suburbs - Places and Spaces improve the centres’ identity, provides a community focal point and celebrates local history and character. 

Public art and creative outcomes can take many forms ranging from sculptures and gateway signage to mural artworks and creative lighting. The approaches and types of artworks vary from precinct to precinct, subject to community input and feedback. 

Community art is a collaborative and participatory process and often includes workshops with the local community. Commissioned art is the direct engagement of the artist who provides distinctive and innovative artwork for the centre. Integrated artwork can be functional as well as aesthetic, for example, street furniture may be embellished or hand crafted.
