Re-imagining Castlemaine is an invited design workshop to bring forward ideas for an energy generating public artwork for a site in Castlemaine, Victoria.
The Castlemaine workshop will also provide professional development opportunities to local artists, architects, designers and engineers interested in employing energy technologies as the material for their work, and will point to pathways for innovation and experimentation in the delivery of public art.
While there is not yet a commitment to construct the outcome of the Castlemaine workshop, the intention is that the exhibition of the designs from the workshop will lead to a broad community conversation around the future of the site and potentially to the implementation of a project that is informed by the outcomes.
Public presentations: Tues 9 October, 5.30-7pm
Open Studio: October 13 & 14, 11am-4pm
@The Goods Shed, Castlemaine
This project is made possible thanks to a grant from the Regional Centre for Culture and through the State Government of Victoria’s sponsorship of the LAGI2018 Design Competition for St Kilda Triangle and associated events.
