Nine local artists have produced artworks for a new installation bringing new colour and vibrancy to Woden temporary interchange.

Several white shipping containers acting as bus platforms at the temporary Woden interchange are adorned with new pieces from the artists who worked with local community members to inspire their work.

Artists creating pieces are Dan Magginity (Byrd), Carlos Sanchez, Lawrence Tan, Mimi Fairall, Paul Summerfield, Sarah Murray, Yamile Tafur Rios, Tracey Hall and Yanni Pounartzis. They were asked to respond to themes identified by the community in the consultation process for the Place Design Brief for Phillip Block 1, Section 7, including the themes ‘Valuing and connecting to the spirit of place’, ‘Showcasing the best of urban life’, and ‘Bringing together different generations’.

Minister for Housing and Suburban Development, Yvette Berry unveiled the installed artworks on Monday 18 December and said, “bringing together the work of local artists with future development aspirations for the Woden region is a fantastic collaboration.”
