PUBLIC aims to explore creativity as a catalyst for generating public good – for the wellbeing or benefit of society. Creativity and the arts have their own inherent value, but PUBLIC aims also to explore how creativity can benefit the shaping of our places, the connectivity and vibrancy of our communities, the skills and confidence of our emerging talent, and the living and social environments we share. PUBLIC embraces diversity and prioritises community, reasserting the principle that if done well, art can catalyse change and improve quality of life.
