The Project

The City of Rockingham encompasses diverse precincts, ranging from beachside Shoalwater to potential future development sites at Karnup and Keralup. From residential suburbs to industrial land, parks and reserves, major State assets and pristine coastline, the City is home to a dynamic, growing community.

Following the development of the Cultural Development and the Arts Strategy 2018-2022, the City’s arts and cultural sector is undergoing a period of significant renewal, in order to better reflect its distinct identity through high quality arts, culture and heritage initiatives. A robust and innovative policy and guideline framework, guided by a strong vision, is required to effectively utilise public art to create destinations, enhance community identity, and develop the City’s cultural community.

Our Role

element worked closely with the City of Rockingham to deliver a framework which considers all aspects of public and moveable art - from the City’s perspective as initiator, custodian and manager, and from a developer perspective – to ensure that the optimum outcome is achieved through private sector delivery of public art.


The policy and guidelines outline high level purpose, vision and guiding principles, as well as practical guidelines to address the existing collection and the procurement of works.

What We Delivered
  • Implementation of cross-team engagement to identify key challenges and opportunities in current process
  • Identification of framework for a robust and strategic set of guidelines which are actionable and concise
  • Rockingham Public Art and Moveable Art Collection Policies
