The EOI process is now open for a design workshop that will imagine energy generating public art for a site in Castlemaine’s emerging new cultural precinct. Join the internationally renowned, Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI), Crosby Architects and Carbon Arts for a 3 day intensive studio at the Goods Shed from 7-9 October, as part of the Regional Centre for Culture program.

This is a unique and free professional development opportunity for up to 12 artists, designers, architects and engineers wanting to use cutting edge renewable energy technology to creatively shape low-carbon urban landscapes. LAGI’s global competitions and commissions around the world have demonstrated that renewable energy can (and should) be beautiful!

The outcomes of the workshop will be presented to the public in an open studio format over the weekend of 13-14 October at the Goods Shed, Castlemaine, Victoria. EOI closes 24 August. For full details of how to apply, please download EOI document here.
