The City of Hobart plays an important role in fostering creativity and artistic expression through the Creative Hobart Grants programs, and the City's public art expression of interests (EOIs) and initiatives.

The City priorities are to invest in:

  • activating outdoor and indoor public spaces
  • employing artists
  • engaging local community in participatory experiences.

We have a range of creative platforms such as The LOOP, Soapbox Billboards, Urban Art Walls and Signal Boxes for the community to freely express themselves.
