Placemaking and Activation Support Program

The City of Marion’s new Placemaking and Activation Support Program is aimed at fostering the vibrancy and prosperity of the local business community.

About the program

The Program provides financial and in-kind contributions to a diverse range of projects. These initiatives include creating inviting destinations for both visitors and residents, enhancing community engagement in activating public spaces, supporting public artworks, boosting the evening and night-time economy, and improving safety and environmental conditions.

Through collaborative placemaking efforts, the Program aims to reimagine public spaces into vibrant hubs where people can live, work, and play, aligning with the City of Marion's strategic vision of creating attractive, amenity-rich neighbourhoods.

Eligible projects encompass a wide array of endeavours, from public art installations to street furniture and environmental improvements, all contributing to the community's well-being and sense of place.


Businesses and organisations within the City of Marion are encouraged to apply for support through the Program, which remains open for applications throughout the financial year.

By partnering with the City of Marion, applicants can bring their innovative placemaking ideas to life, contributing to the vitality and prosperity of the local community.

Applications for the Placemaking and Activation Support Program can be made at any time by emailing an Expression of Interest to

The Program will be open for applications until the budget allocation is exhausted each financial year.
