The Art of Villawood
For nearly two decades, Folko Kooper has been creating breathtaking statement pieces for Villawood’s communities. We asked him t o share his thoughts on how art can bring people together.
“Art & scuplture create an atmosphere of enriched experience.
“This is only a small part of bringing people together, but it helps to bring down guards and barriers in people.
“I think people living with art in their community have a proud feel of ownership. It helps to define the boundaries of the community.
“Villawood creates spaces in their projects that facilitate getting to know your neighbours. Places like barbecue areas, terrific play spaces that ask for community participation, green open spaces with the ambience that encourages conversation,” says Folko.
