Youth Art Project Highlights Community Values

On 14 November, Shoalhaven City Council together with students from Shoalhaven High School celebrated the completion of a collaborative Youth Community Art Project with a barbeque, hosted by Mission Australia at Parramatta Park, East Nowra

The installation consisted of a bright mural created by the students featuring painted boards which were then fixed to the southern side of the handball wall at Parramatta Park, East Nowra.

The colourful artwork was painted by school students in class, on timber boards and installed by Council at the western end of the Park. The vibrant artwork aims to bring the community together to celebrate culture, health and positivity and pays homage to the flora and fauna of the area.

Shoalhaven City Council Mayor Amanda Findley was impressed with the students’ artwork and the message it conveys “the mural is a great physical representation of the community values important to the youth of the area. The artwork helps to give the students a sense of connection to the space and pride in seeing their message so prominently displayed. It is a credit to the students, and all involved.” Clr Findley said.

The Youth Community Art Project is the latest initiative by Council to revitalise the space and follows on from previous activations at the park including hosting community events such as Youth Week 2019, Prosperity in the Park – Anti Poverty Week events and the Schools National Tree Planting Day, with preschool, primary and high school students taking part. Recent improvements to Parramatta Park include a Learn to Ride facility, landscaping and site beautification and a basketball hoop and backboard.
