Public Art celebrating poetry and place with installations across the STA region.
Poetry: The Indelible Stencil was conceived of and coordinated by poet Lizz Murphy who worked with 9 other respected local poets to write in response to our environment. Their words feature on permanent sculptures installed in unexpected and uniquely beautiful locations.
Discover each Indelible Stencil using the map and see how many you can find in the landscape.
It’s the perfect time to experience our local public art and follow The Indelible Stencil trail.

Poetry: The Indelible Stencil is a partnership between STA, Lizz Murphy and the seven LGAs that now care for the resulting public art works.
The project was made possible with funding from the Regional Arts Fund and the Country Arts Support Program (CASP) with the support of Wollondilly, Wingecarribee, Goulburn Mulwaree, Upper Lachlan, Yass Valley, Hilltops, and Queanbeyan Palerang Councils.
