The Canal to Creek Public Art Program is a series of eighteen commissioned artworks across Sydney’s inner west suburbs from St Peters to Beverly Hills curated and delivered by Cultural Capital. The program includes contemporary sculptures, artist-designed playgrounds, a writer’s walk, murals and immersive lighting installations that activate new and existing parklands along the new M8The artists are a diverse mix of local, international, emerging and established contemporary. There are multiple commissions by Aboriginal artists, broad multicultural perspectives and a large scale mural by an artist working with a disability.

Each work is a site-specific exploration of the relationship between people and place. Individually the works tell a unique story of place and community.
