Arts and Culture in Lane Cove

Council prides itself on nurturing a community rich in culture with a unique identity. Each year Council develops events, works with community organisations and supports initiatives that strengthen the culture and creative expression within Lane Cove.

A number of the actions identified in Council's annual Operational Plan reflect the strategic Cultural Plan developed in partnership with the community in 1994. Council has recently adopted a revised plan following its successful work in embedding arts, culture and cultural diversity into Lane Cove's practices for more than 10 years. To keep up to date on the latest activities, sign up to Arts & Cultural e-news.

Artist Opportunity: Lane Cove Village Public Art Program

Artists are invited to submit an expression of interest to be commissioned by Lane Cove Council to develop concepts and create site specific mural works for identified locations in the Lane Cove Village.

Through the Lane Cove Village Public Art Program, Council will work with local property owners to have murals painted on blank or unsightly walls in the village. A selection of walls have been identified by Council as appropriate for the program to be delivered this financial year.

This is an ongoing program and new sites will continue to be identified by Council and Property Owners. Your Expression of Interest will remain on the list of interested artists until March 2024.

Please download the Artist Guidelines to submit your Expression of Interest for this program here.


Lane Cove Art Award 2021

Unfortunately for the second year in the row the Lane Cove Art Award has been postponed. A lot of work goes in behind the scenes with dedicated volunteers from Lane Cove Art Society helping to receive and coordinate artworks and help to deliver a popular opening night. With Sydney still in a critical phase of COVID-19 the difficult decision has been made not to host the Award later this month. Artists can register their interest to be notified of the next Award date by emailing Council supports this decision and thanks Lane Cove Art Society for their ongoing involvement in this signature event on our annual calendar.
