Thanks to everyone who provided feedback.

Over 250 visited the Your Say page, a further 18 people provided feedback via the online survey and one person attended the community information session held at the Seaford Community Centre.

Of the feedback received online, 10 people were in support of the project, 5 people were not in support and the remaining 2 people were neither supportive or not supportive.

Common themes coming out of the feedback were:

  • Why is council spending money on art
  • Keeping the current mosaics
  • Landscaping

We feel confident to progress the project and are now in talks with the design team to consider all feedback, including the potential for relocating the current mosaic benches and wall within the vicinity or close by. We will share the new concept design with the community as soon as we can.

Background

The garden area beside the Seaford Community Centre and the northern entrance to Moana Primary School has been identified by the City of Onkaparinga as a suitable location. This area is used widely as a walk through and by families to pick up and drop off school children attending Moana Primary School.

We are also taking the opportunity to beautify this area and provide bench seating. The project will include the removal of the current mosaic artwork that is quite degraded and be replaced with the Place of Courage artwork.

View the Concept Plan to see the placement and landscaping proposed.

The project seeks to commemorate the traumatic impact of family and domestic violence on individuals, families and communities, raising awareness and furthering the dialogue for understanding and change. The site will be a place of comfort and healing, promoting courage to speak up and out and provide a powerful symbol of a peaceful and unified community. Artist, Clancy Warner, has been engaged to create this work and has developed a concept.

This area will remain a meeting place for families for school pick-up and drop-offs. The artist's design allows for an open reading of this significant public artwork but it envisioned that is will become a place where both individuals and groups can come and reflect and heal in a safe and familiar environment highlighting the issue of family and domestic violence.

Have Your Say

Consultation closed on 12 April. We're now collating the feedback and will share the outcomes with you soon.

    We are very excited with the new developments at Seaford.

    We successfully moved the existing mosaic work to a great location near the Moana Primary School in the park. The artist, Clancy Warner, has begun installing the Place of Courage public art work on site and has had lots of interest from local passers-by whilst she has been carving and polishing the granite boulders.

    The next phase once the artist has completed the work will be to upgrade the garden, which we hope to undertake in Spring. We will launch this work later in the year and keep you updated.
