Bina Parkland Community Artworks

Princess Wallington Community Parkland was developed by the City of Stirling as a place for all generations and ethnicity groups. The Princess Wallington Community Parkland (PWCP) project was designed by a project team lead by Ecoscape and will be constructed by MG Group.

The Arterial artist team, collaborated with the City of Stirling and the Project Design and Construction Teams to integrate the artworks into the parkland design and deliver them within the proposed program. Helen Curtis and Julia Robinson-White, Apparatus, curated and managed the project as the client’s representative and Art Coordinator. An important component of the public art project was the active engagement of the local community including facilitated workshop/s with North Balga Primary School and the Wadjak Northside Aboriginal Community Working Group. These workshops positively influenced the design outcome of the project. Apparatus was engaged by the City of Stirling to curate and manage the public art project.

  • I have had the opportunity to work with the Apparatus team on a number of occasions over the years, both in developing strategies and masterplans for public art, and also in managing public art projects.

    Apparatus always strive for excellence and bring a wealth of industry experience, knowledge and relationships which ensures the very best outcomes for the projects at hand.

    Apparatus developed the Melville City Centre Public Art Strategy which provided a framework to implement a public art requirement for the Melville City Centre precinct. The strategy has resulted in many great outcomes for developments within the precinct.

    Apparatus curated the public art for the City of Stirling’s award winning $6.2m Bina Parkland project. Delivering a public art strategy for the parkland which incorporated many integrated elements and ensured the local community were engaged with at all stages throughout its development. The result is a much-loved series of artworks that celebration both our First Nations a culturally diverse communities.

    The team’s ability to think creatively and critically is well respected within the industry and her commitment to the development of West Australian artists is second to none.

    Helen is a leader within the arts and public arts space and is often my go to for good advice.
