The Alberton Art Trail is a walking trail of public art created with, by and for the people in our neighbourhood. The artworks explore the multiple meanings, experiences, memories and futures of ‘home’ for our local community. In the last six months, the Covid-19 pandemic has challenged us to engage with our homes and our neighbourhood in different ways. The Alberton Art Trail gives expression to some of those experiences, whilst enabling local people to meet and be creative together.
We are very proud to say that on January 21st, 2021 the Alberton Art Trail received the City of Port Adelaide Enfield ‘Community Event of the Year‘ Award! The award is such massive recognition for all the local artists who poured their time and creativity into the different artworks along the trail. What a community effort!
You can still enjoy the wide range of artworks that have been painted, planted, crafted and drawn by neighbours of all ages. Most artworks will be on display for a few months if not longer. Numbers 16 and 22 were only there for the day, number 1 has since been replaced with another mural. Have a look at the map here:
This project was made possible with the support from the City of Port Adelaide Enfield, and created by The Pear – Neighbourhood Node in collaboration with ECH Inc., Uniting SA, Bringing Back the Butterflies, Kalaya Children’s Centre and Trinity Alberton Church.
