Horsham Rural City Council is a vibrant municipality where people want to live and want to visit. Good public art, design and architecture can build on this asset by creating a unique community identity that informs the sense of place and creates iconic branding of our municipality. The HRCC Public Art Policy was created to respond to and reflect the community vision for Councils existing and future public art works within the municipality for the next five years. The 2005 Public Art Policy was developed to identify a vision, themes and procedures to guide the delivery of quality public art that reflected the aspirations of the people within Horsham Rural City Council. The 2005 policy was never formally adopted by Council and both Council and community priorities have shifted slightly since 2005. As a result, the need for a review, consultation and development of a revised Public Art Policy was identified. The current 2013-2018 Public Art Policy has been developed in response to this review and reflects current priorities and aspirations identified both within Council and as a result of a community consultation process.

The Public Art Policy Procedures document was created to attribute the roles, responsibilities and procedural guidance required to implement the policy. The procedures were developed to support the implementation of the policy and the delivery of public art within the current priorities of both the community and Council.
