There’s a big difference between street art and graffiti and common tagging, and whilst the City is a strong supporter of
one, there is a hardworking team dedicated to the removal ofthe other.
Quick removal of graffiti is a key means of discouraging further attacks. Graffiti offenders want their graffiti seen, so removing it as soon as possible lessens the impact. If graffiti is not removed from a location, more graffiti tends to occur.
To help prevent graffiti, the City supports and facilitates youth programs that include street art workshops, and has invested in the Heartwalk CBD street art project, which is centered around activating and enlivening vacant retail premises and blank walls with large scale murals completed by local, indigenous and Western Australian professional artists.
The City wants to send a strong message that vandalism such as graffiti is not acceptable in our community. If you see tagging or graffiti on your property or in your neighbourhood, report it to the City by calling 9021 9600, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
or via the Snap, Send, Solve app.
