Public Art and Design supports the commissioning of high quality new works of art and design for public places by practising professional South Australian artists.

Projects in the public realm may be functional or non-functional, permanent or temporary. They may be undertaken through a collaborative approach between artists and other design professionals or may be realised with the involvement of community members, either through consultation or participation.

This program offers three categories:
