How can we facilitate a conversation with our community by using public art and renewable energy to transform public places and spaces?
The Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI) will be holding a public discussion focusing on our transition to a post carbon future. The event is open to all to attend, and will include a panel from varying disciplines including art in public space, renewable energy, and members of our local community.
LAGI is an international design ideas competition that uses renewable energy technology as the media to make public art. In 2018 the St Kilda Triangle will be the virtual canvas for design submissions from around the globe.
