SIPA Framework

The Signage, Interpretation and Public Art (SIPA) Framework is a roadmap – our guide to the planning, design
and implementation of inspired directional wayfinding (signage), compellingly good story telling (interpretation) and thought provoking public art throughout the Grey District.​

This Framework has been developed by Grey District Council in conjunction with stakeholders and embeds collaboration and partnership into a matched funding model. The initial 2015 funding round was $80,000 available; a minimum of $5,000 and a maximum of $10,000 will be allocated per location. Applicants are required to match the Council funding 1:1 with independent funding.

Council committed to on-going funding of $10,000 per year from 2016 to ensure the Framework’s continuing implementation and success.

Groups are required to provide the following with their applications:

  • Proofs of proposed signage and/or interpretation using the Grey District Family of Signs
  • Proof of matched funding
  • Technical advice or peer review of placements and locations and compliance with all relevant regulations
  • Aerial photo with all placements and locations as per technical advice
  • Proof of an independent review of all content/art design by the relevant organisation or expert

Please contact Council on 03 769 8600 or email info@greydc.govt.nz if you have any questions or wish to submit an application for funding under the SIPA Framework.
