We value arts and culture in our community and support the development of vibrant and sustainable arts and cultural sector.

Through the Arts and Culture Plan 2024, Mornington Peninsula Shire aims to activate underutilised spaces by embedding more arts and culture in our streets. It is well acknowledged that murals can bring about a number of positive community solutions:

  • Public art and mural projects are a sustainable approach to prevent ongoing graffiti, improve amenity, proactively engage young people and inspire our community.
  • The creation of murals generates a positive impact in the local community and economy as well as provide creatives opportunities to contribute in meaningful ways through telling important stories about place.
  • Provide visual information and opportunities for connection.
  • Discouraging graffiti upon public and private property.
  • Contribute to building a sense of safety and belonging in the community.
  • Improve the management of public and shared spaces.
