Creative Latrobe will implement exciting and bold art activations and installations in Traralgon, Morwell, Moe, Churchill and one small town to be selected by the community.
These art activations will not only create quality art but also increase use, visitation and community pride.
Community members are encouraged to attend upcoming workshops in June to share their thoughts as to suitable sites and types of artwork they would like considered. Latrobe creatives and artists are also encouraged to attend to gain more information on the project aims and scope.
Creative Latrobe is a public art project partnership between Latrobe Health Assembly, Latrobe City Council and the Latrobe community.
Mayor of Latrobe City, Councillor Kellie O’Callaghan said Creative Latrobe was an exciting opportunity for community members to share their ideas on suitable locations and for local artists to get involved.
“The Creative Latrobe project will create activated and engaging spaces in locations that are typically avoided locally,” said the Mayor.
“We encourage the community to get involved and share what areas such as underpasses, facades, nooks and bus stops could do with a revamp. We are interested to also hear what types of art they would like to see which could include murals, sculptures, digital, light, sound-based and kinetic art.
“We look forward to seeing what creative ideas are provided and watching the project develop and provide positive outcomes for our City.”
