As part of our Community Artwork Program, we are transforming the Woorim and Bongaree Water Towers with painted artworks through the following process:
Early this month, residents and business operators of Bribie Island shared their ideas for the artwork through a community survey.
We are now tallying the results and will soon announce details for the artwork design brief.
We are commissioning an artwork for both Bongaree and Woorim Water Towers based on a design brief to be created by the people who live, work and play alongside the towers.
The project forms part of our Community Artwork Program which works to reduce graffiti and create high profile community artworks on some of our most prominent sites with the help of local residents.
By working hand in hand with our communities, we have successfully reduced the rate of graffiti on five large water towers and reservoirs.
Our public artworks are designed with input from residents and businesses, to ensure each site celebrates and reflects their local community.
The artworks are installed by a professional public art agency that also specialises in community engagement and youth mentoring.
Community survey to determine the style, content and theme of the designs.
Unitywater appoints a public art agency and commissions two designs for each tower to meet the community-driven design brief.
Community vote to select one artwork to be painted on each tower.
Installation of both artworks.
