In Australia over the last few years, governments at a state and local level have been active in the development of public art and cultural policy. In 2001 the Adelaide City Council adopted a new Public Art Policy and the Queensland Government has a 2% for art policy, Art Built-in.
The next Urban Design Forum (No 64) will be guest-edited by Carol Atwell and Richard Brecknock. Both Carol and Richard have been active in promoting the role of culture in the built environment through policy, planning and projects. They will bring together a range of articles from practitioners and theorists from across the country to explore cultural planning and the integration of art in urban design projects by governments and the private sector.
