Re-imagine Renewable Energy
"How can renewable energy be integrated into public spaces in ways that educate, inspire, and are responsive to the history, culture and nature of place?" - LAGI2018
Carbon Arts is thrilled to be working with the Land Art Generator Initiative in 2018 to bring their popular, international design competition to Melbourne. On 10 February we will be launching "Energy Overlays" a challenge to artists, designers, architects and engineers around the world to design renewable energy infrastructure for the iconic St Kilda Triangle site, along Melbourne's fashionable foreshore.
Operating now for almost 10 years, the LAGI biennial ideas competition has been challenging creative minds to imagine public art installations in Copenhagen, New York, Dubai/Abu Dhabi and Santa Monica that double as renewable energy generators, powering local neighbourhoods. Like us at Carbon Arts, LAGI understands the power of public art as a vehicle for positive change.

Along with sponsor: the Victorian Government, and partners: City of Port Phillip, FedSquare, Climarte and the Regional Centre for Culture, we are looking forward to an action-packed year of events, envisioning and working towards the beauty and promise of a post-carbon world.
