Banyule's bi-annual program of ephemeral artworks in public spaces
This program aims to invigorate Banyule’s public spaces, encourages people to experience the arts in unexpected places and to think about the city differently.
Each year we seek to support small, new and original, site-specific art projects. Works are one-off, ephemeral art experiences delivered in a public space within Banyule – a shopping strip, car park, laneway, swimming pool, local park or even a bus stop – it might be anywhere, as long as it's creative. It may be contemporary performance, visual art, digital-media, writing or a combination of art forms. We look for work that is engaging, accessible and invites contemplation. Grants of $1,000 per project are offered in each round.
Projects address the themes of the Pinpoint Program:
