Yorke Peninsula Council, in partnership with Yorke Peninsula Tourism and the Coobowie, Edithburgh, Stansbury and Yorketown Progress Associations, were successful in gaining funding through the Regional Tourism Bushfire Recovery Grant. This funding supports the Southern Yorke Peninsula (SYP) Water Tower/Tank Mural Trail project which will see the SA Water owned water towers in Edithburgh, Stansbury and Yorketown and the water tank in Coobowie painted.
Through community consultations, the Yorke Peninsula Community have shared their ideas and inspiration towards what they would like to see on each water tower/tank. Artists then had the opportunity to express interest in undertaking the project by pitching their concepts, and have since been shortlisted. Stage three of the community consultation process, where community members voted on their favourite artist concept, has now closed. Successful artists and concepts for each town included:
Stansbury: Nicky Create – Stansbury Concept
Edithburgh: Mike Makatron – Edithburgh Concept
Coobowie: Creature Creature – Coobowie Concept
Yorketown: Jasmine Crisp – Yorketown Concept
The last round of community consultation will be held at the below times and locations. Community members are encouraged to attend these sessions, or submit their feedback via email:
Stansbury: Monday 14 December at 6.00pm, Stansbury Institute
Edithburgh: Tuesday 15 December at 7.30pm, Edithburgh Institute
