Mural installation at Sanctuary Point Skatepark

Adelaide-based aerosol artist MUCHOS is coming to the Shoalhaven to complete his mural designed for the Sanctuary Point Skatepark as part of The Point Project.

Access to the skate bowl will be restricted from Tuesday 9 April, until Friday, 12 April; however, access to other areas of the skate park will be unaffected.

“This mural will stand as a powerful symbol for unity and community pride,”

said Mayor Amanda Findley.

This community-led initiative commenced in 2021 with upgrades to the Sanctuary Point Skatepark to help attract more families to the park and improve the sense of community safety. The mural was developed as a result of conversations with the community, service providers, and local volunteer groups, as well as a behaviour mapping study conducted by Firefly throughout 2022, which highlighted the need to further improve the sense of safety in the area and to develop a greater sense of community.

The design of the mural has been done in collaboration with Verb Syndicate, Street Artist Consultants, Firefly Bay and Basin and Council and was inspired by conversations with local young people.

“It’s a great initiative, designed to provide a welcoming environment for our young people to enjoy,”

Cr Findley said.

Three concept themes for the design were produced, and students from Vincentia High School and Sanctuary Point Public School voted to select the final design.

Head over to the skate park after the 12 April to find out which design was chosen. To read more about this exciting youth-led community project click on the links to the right of this page.
