Townsville Public Art

Townsville container

The Embracing 2018 Public Domain Improvement Program funds minor capital works such as public art to deliver a range of benefits to the community as well as ensuring a quality experience for visitors during the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

The Queensland Government is supporting the development of the Uncontained Container Art Park at Strand Park in Townsville as part of Festival 2018.Ā Uncontained builds on Townsville's acclaimed street and building art program and is reaching new heights with leading genre artists, including Goodie and Mr Trouble, creating dominating images on 30 stacked shipping containers.

Uncontained will demonstrate Townsville's ability to deliver arts and culture festivals, creating a legacy for the city.
