Public Art and Street Zones

There has been success in other urban areas in combating graffiti by introducing street art zones and the implementation of street art permits. Research shows that such spaces reduce the rate of unauthorised graffiti in the surrounding area. If you would like to recommend a location or participate in a program, please contact us.
