Welcome to Love Outdoors

Throughout this project, you will see a number of outdoor activations come to life on our streets. From artists markets to parklets, through to graffiti removal and murals, Love Outdoors is ready to welcome in 2022.

Thanks to state government-led $40 million COVIDSafe Outdoor Activation Fund 2021, Victorian councils can support businesses to operate in outdoor settings in a COVIDSafe manner.

“Love Outdoors offers fantastic ideas. A suggestion: Council returns the street litter bins that they've removed over the years. Seriously. ”

“RenuWall murals are great, but Bruns/Coburg has a huge problem with Tagging. We need a collaborative approach to try and stop this damage”
