​​Project background

The City of Canterbury Bankstown is encouraging creative senior high school students to design an interesting and engaging artwork.

The selected design will be converted into a large vertical image, installed onto a new wall in Canterbury Town Centre, using flatbed printed ceramic tiles.

Figure One: concept image of the location


The artwork should reflect the local life, experience or identity of the area, energising the site with something that is unique, engaging and fun.

The artwork could explore:

  • What your experiences, observations or memories are;
  • What you love or know about Canterbury;
  • What you identify with the Canterbury area;
  • The history of the area.

We have provided some web sites with background information about the area at the end of this doument.


The design can be made using any medium, but will need to be transferred into a digital format for Stage One and Two submissions:

  • For Stage One, the design submission must be in a .JPEG format (maximum 2MB); and
  • For Stage Two, the design submission must be in a .JPEG format at a 200ppi resolution, ready for printing onto the ceramic tiles.

Students can make submissions as individuals or in groups. The successful student(s) will be paid $2,000 for their artwork, once the final approved artwork design is submitted to Council.

Council's Project Manager will liaise with, and provide assistance to, the applicants as required.


The artwork will go up on the eastern wall of pedestrian stairs, to be constructed in Robert Street, Canterbury.

These stairs (as per Figures Two and Three in the Design Brief Document), will link Robert Street to the Cooks River foreshore and will be adjacent to the Cooks River cycleway. View the Robert Street Steps Artwork Wall Outline.
