Project: Glenfield Public Domain Strategy
Organisation: Environmental Partnership (for Campbelltown City Council)
Place: Western Sydney
Project Type: Community and cultural development, Culture-led Placemaking, Curating and Programming
Campbelltown City Council is planning for significant change in the Glenfield area, aligned with the NSW State Government’s Fit for the Future program, in anticipation of the area’s projected population growth.
City People was sub-contracted by Environmental Partnership to contribute to the Glenfield Public Domain Plan at various phases, through a process of workshop design, interviews, presentation and place activation strategy. We worked with Campbelltown Arts Centre for the consultation of key stakeholders and for the development of arts and cultural proposals for the precinct.
To produce an arts and cultural strategy for the Glenfield Precinct Public Domain Project, including:
- Placemaking principles informed by engagement with local stakeholders,
- The identification of place themes that provide the context for the place strategies and set of cultural propositions/actions and,
- A recommended program of arts and cultural propositions/actions that will contribute to the success of the place strategies.
City People explored the views and knowledge the community had about arts and culture in this area through research, consultations and advocacy in partnership with Campbelltown Arts Centre. This provided the basis for the over-arching placemaking principles and arts and cultural proposals. The community knowledge-driven methodology has ensured that the Glenfield Public Domain Strategy incorporates sound cultural awareness, and that the design objectives reflect the local community’s needs and aspirations for the precinct.
