Drainwaves Project

Who are Ripples Community Arts?

Lochiel Park residents have formed a group called Ripples Community Arts.  The purpose of the group is to encourage and enable local people to participate in art related projects.

What is the Drainwaves Project?

Throughout Lochiel Park Village, Campbelltown, there are 23 large concrete stormwater drains, officially known as Bio-retention Pits.  Following extensive resident consultation, there was overwhelming support for a Community Art Project to mosaic good quality designs on the stormwater drains and concrete blocks.

Ripples Community Arts has so far achieved the following outcomes for the Drainwaves Project.

  • Enthusiastic approval and participation by local residents.
  • Wide community consultation on new designs.
  • Council support of designs which have been approved by Ripples Community Arts.
  • Regular workshops to undertake mosaic designs which also provides continuous learning in the mosaic process.
  • Ongoing installation of mosaic designs on drains throughout Lochiel Park.
  • Local community encouragement to submit designs for the Drainwaves Mosaic project.

Participate and Submit a Design

Ripples Community Arts encourages you to join the mosaic project by submitting a design.  The group aims to continue the beautification of Lochiel Park through the mosaic project.  Ripples Community Arts also invites and welcomes residents of the Campbelltown area who wish to participate.

If you are interested in submitting a design, please download the Ripples Community Arts Drainwaves Project Design Submission Instructions(996 kb).
