The ACT Government is committed to providing street artists with the opportunity to practice their art in public places and to reduce the amount of illegal graffiti that is undertaken.
There are currently 27 legal art practice walls across Canberra which primarily consists of underpasses and spillways. These provide a safe place for artists, while also minimising the impact on local residents and allow an alternative for illegal graffiti.
Murals in public locations bring colour, tell stories and inspire the community to be proud about the area they live in, as well as helping to prevent unwanted illegal graffiti tagging.
Legal Graffiti Practice Sites
Legal graffiti practice sites are diversionary sites on ACT Government assets in public places.
Community murals help to brighten and enrich public spaces and give people a sense of ownership, pride and commitment to their community.
Removal of Illegal Graffiti Vandalism
