ABOUT THE CURATORIAL TEAM

Urban Art Projects’ Curatorial Team specialises in curating integrated, site-specific art programs to activate the public realm. A team of dedicated professionals from diverse backgrounds, they combine a wealth of training and experience to bridge the gap between the arts industry and the built environment. At the foundation of their ethos is a belief in the capacity of public art to build on the richness of a culture and connect people to place. They draw on local knowledge and global networks to create art strategies that consider the unique cultural, social and physical roles of a site while addressing practical commercial and urban requirements.

Backed by a larger team of in-house designers, project managers, engineers, craftspeople and fabricators, they are at the forefront of Urban Art Projects’ full service capability to deliver public art projects from visioning to installation.
