Youth artwork to feature at Edge Skatepark

12 September 2017​

A group of eight young Kwinana residents have created a series of sculptural seats for the new Edge Skatepark. Guided by local artists Lesley Barrett and Scott Daly, the group carved the seats from timer logs salvaged from the area. The timber logs were worked on over several weeks at Ngulla Farm in Casuarina.

The artworks are intended to not only be functional, but to bring a sense of place and identity to a space where young people in Kwinana enjoy spending time. 

City of Kwinana Mayor Carol Adams said she hoped the young people were immensely proud of their work. 

“This group has worked hard to create beautiful and functional artworks that will be enjoyed by the community for many years to come. With the popularity of the Edge Skatepark, I’m sure these seats will be well used and become a much-loved feature of the space.”

The seats will soon be moved to their home in the shade of the trees at the Edge Skatepark.   

Awards were presented to the participants of this project by Mayor Carol Adams at a celebration at Ngulla Farm on 31 August.
