What is inclusive play?
Inclusive Play means that children can play together regardless of abilities – they can share the same equipment, or play side by side on equipment that is modified but does the same type of activity. Not everyone will have the abilities to use all the equipment in the playground, but everyone will have a choice of a range of activities.

What is the public art project?
Darwin Community Arts’ Arts Access program has been awarded a grant of nearly $143,000 to develop a bespoke piece of sensory artwork to feature in the new inclusive playground at Jingili Water Gardens. City of Darwin is contributing an additional $100,000 to the public art project.
Darwin Community Arts established
the Free Spaces Studio in 2013. Free Space Studio is a visual arts studio
supporting artists with disabilities with creative skills development - the
studio currently supports 18 Darwin based artists.
Six of the Free Space Studio artists will be chosen to work with as-yet-to-be-confirmed designer and the City Of Darwin’s public art project team. The Free Space Studio artists will be part of a collaborative design process, determining everything from concept to installation.
