Public Art Park brings art in public to Melbourne Fringe 2023, a site-wide program at Testing Grounds featuring numerous projects through the Festival.

A discussion of ideas about public art is critical to this program. So, what is public art anyway? What duty and obligation do we have when we occupy public space with creative works?

Whose narratives and stories are told? What histories are foregrounded? What futures are speculated? What is the relationship with an audience, with the public? What agency does public art have? How does it engage with the temporal, durational, spatial? How does it relate to site and to place?
