Stobie pole painting in the local community

Tue., 25 August, 2020

The City of Port Adelaide Enfield ran the ‘Paint Ya Pole’ program from 11 May 2020 to 11 July 2020. The program provided applicants with paint supplies and assisted with SA Power Network’s approval to the paint stobie poles in the local area.

The R2P Alliance registered Packard Avenue for the program and collaborated with the local residents for design ideas. Local artist Tracey Davis worked with the residents to bring their ideas to life.

Tracey painted the design outlines on the stobie poles in preparation for the painting days. On the painting days, residents worked together with the R2P Alliance staff and Tracey to complete the artwork. It took several days and great commitment was shown by the residents to deliver a fantastic result.

Some elderly residents were not able to participate in the painting and instead requested a design that meant something to them. During the painting days, they were able to watch the artwork come to life.

The City of Port Adelaide Enfield has entered the Packard Avenue ‘Paint Ya Pole’ artwork into the South Australian Living Artists Festival art trails for 2020. The art trails are a self-guided way to discover hidden gems in Adelaide.
