Pioneer Park toilets set to be brightened up
ALPINE Shire Council has committed to giving the dull toilet block at Pioneer Park a lively makeover to fit in with the new Alpine Events Centre which is expected to be finished next month.
It will be part of a youth art project with council seeking expressions of interest from young people aged 13-18 to work with professional street artist AJ Tan to design and install a mural complementary to the surrounding area.
Alpine Shire Council manager economic and community development Elaine Burridge said the project is a great opportunity for young people to use their interest in art for a positive community outcome.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to work alongside a professional artist and learn street art techniques,” she said.
“Previous projects in Myrtleford and Porepunkah have resulted in incredible artworks which brighten the area and create a unique asset for their town.”
The project is due to be delivered in the September school holidays.
Interested community members are invited to attend a community information session on site to discuss the mural concept for the project on Monday, August 13 at 4pm.
Last month it was also announced that youth in Mt Beauty will create a mural for the town’s skate park and sports precinct with funding from the state government’s graffiti prevention program.
