Coker Park State Graffiti Fund Grant: Mural Project

The City of Canning recently received State Graffiti Funding to work with young people at Cannington Community College to design and paint a mural on the adjoining Coker Park recreational facility.

The park adjoins and is used by both the Cannington Community College and Sevenoaks Senior College and a range of sporting clubs as well as the general community.

The City has been working with local Perth artist Mel McVee and Year 10 art students of the Cannington Community College to design and paint the mural at Coker Park.

The initiative aims to decrease graffiti incidents at Coker Park and the immediate surrounds.

Throughout the project the City worked with WA Police and the Graffiti Task Force to provide graffiti education to students of the Cannington Community College. Helping to raise awareness around graffiti vandalism and associated consequences, and the difference between graffiti and urban art.

Canning Mayor Paul Ng officially launched the new urban art mural at the Coker Park Sports Pavilion on the 4 December 2018.

I love the use of art to not just cover bland and functional spaces or objects like toilet blocks but also be dynamic visually, allowing the community to enjoy art in their own neighbourhood. One area that is overlooked at the gate entrances to waterways around Willetton and Riverton as a suggestion to the City of Canning. I would love to have input from the Water Corporation and City of Canning to work together in greening up their waterways used by bird life in our suburbs and also making it more attractive rather than having a chainmail type gate.
