Program Components

By placing artwork in our everyday environment public art encourages citizens to take pride in cultural expression and it can create a forum to address relevant themes and issues.  In addition, public art has the ability to attract tourists and to stimulate investment in the community.

The North Vancouver Public Art Program is comprised of three main program streams: civic, community and developer-generated public art. While all three programs operate within the broader goal of building a sense of community identity through public art, each program has different objectives and funding mechanisms.
