Newman Park

UDLA were sponsored by BHP billiton to work on the Newman Park project to celebrate the achievements of Newman with an inviting and vibrant public space.

The creation of a defined recreational space small enough to feel enclosed yet connected and open to the street offers a chance to gather at a safe local hub. Local artists were commissioned to bring substance and inspiration to the project. The park offers a chance to recognise and engage with indigenous culture and works to reignite a sense of town pride.

OUTCOMES:
    • A practical local amenity to a socially and environmentally challenging region
    • Increased sense of pride in the local community
    • Celebration of aboriginal culture in public art
COLLABORATORS:
    • Artsource
    • BHP Billiton
