Sandown Close Youth Urban Art Project
The Youth Urban Art Project provided opportunities for increased connection and participation by young people to beautify local recreational spaces. Five murals were designed throughout the project which was co-funded by Cairns Regional Council and the Federal Government's Building Better Regions Fund.
Black Cockatoos, regular visitors to Sandown Close were the inspiration behind the mural. Children painted individual cockatoo feathers in bold colours, creating a backdrop to the wording 'Sandown Community'.
