Artistic Installations


We have received many suggestions around the issue of public art on our open space, and in particular whether the Council would consider artistic installations on Highcliffe Beach. This topic can be somewhat divisive as what one person considers 'art' may not be considered so by someone else, and tastes vary depending on which cultural era the viewer prefers.

We intend to utilise this page to ascertain your opinions around the ideas we have put forward, and as new suggestions are made we will publish them on here in order to gain feedback. Any popular ideas will be given further consideration by the Council and if possible, a feasibility study and business case will be prepared to potentially apply for external grant funding for future projects.

Please view the photo gallery to look at different examples of public art at coastal locations, and answer the Quick Poll below so we can ascertain your initial thoughts on this idea.

Please also feel free to ask any questions about this project in the Your Questions section below, we will endeavour to answer them as soon as we can and your input will help shape the future content of this project page.
