Creative expressions in public space have been lifting spirits world-wide during the COVID-19 pandemic. Through our Happiness Stimulus Package, a number of competitions, ideas and impacts from creative projects were shared when we asked; how can the City of Melville help spread happiness to our community?

Happiness Appears is a pop-up community art trail providing the opportunity for up to 20 creative individuals or teams to turn their artwork idea into reality and to help spread happiness within our community!

Through this project, we recognise the importance of connecting with our local spaces, places and each other in creative ways.
