Carbon Arts is delighted to be working alongside the Land Art Generator Initiative to deliver their fifth global ideas competition for a utility-scale renewable energy public artwork.

The LAGI 2018 design competition is for a site in Melbourne and will invite artists, designers, scientists, and engineers from around the world to submit proposals for large-scale and site-specific public art installations that generate clean energy.

The design brief is being carefully crafted with local partners to align with the strategic plans and cultural context of the local site, the city, and the region. The project is made possible through the leadership of Victoria’s State Government Department of Environment, Land, Water, and Planning (DELWP).

Victoria is setting an example for the world with a goal of zero carbon emissions by 2050. Melbourne, already one of the most sustainable cities in the world, is targeting net-zero by 2020.

LAGI 2018 Melbourne will bring forward hundreds of examples for how art and design can help us to reach reach these clean energy targets while making our cities more beautiful and vibrant—a vision of our post-carbon future we can all look forward to.
