'A sustainable future'
"Sustainability is a subject that the City of West Torrens Council takes very seriously. Whether it's economic, financial, or environmental sustainability, we are committed to ensuring that our city has a bright future.
The theme of the 2020 West Torrens Art Prize focusses on environmental sustainability and how we, as a community, explore this subject and what it means to us. Environmental adaptation is an issue that affects us all and the biggest impact will be felt by today's youth and the generations that follow.
We hope that the 2020 West Torrens Art Prize will help bring attention to this subject and, as a spin-off effect, educate others about the environment and what's important."

Mayor, City of West Torrens
