Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) Community and Partnerships Officer, Erin Baxter, said artists must produce an artwork inspired by their vision of “Our renewable energy future”.

“This is an exciting opportunity for local artists to represent their local communities by exploring possible renewable energy futures using their creative expression through art,” Mr Baxter said.

“The aim of the award is to generate community awareness about the current and future transition from fossil fuels to carbon neutral renewable energy.

“Artists can use any medium they choose as long as it responds to the theme.

“The ten art pieces will tour the region and be displayed in local libraries once they are completed in December 2019.

“The exhibition will showcase a collective vision of a more sustainable future for Loddon Mallee communities.

“One artist will be selected from each of the each of the 10 municipalities across the region:  

City of Greater Bendigo, Mildura Rural City Council, Swan Hill Rural City Council, Loddon Shire, Gannawarra Shire, Buloke Shire, Central Goldfields Shire, Macedon Ranges Shire Council, Campaspe Shire Council and Mount Alexander Shire Council.

“Those interested must be over 16 years old and return a completed application form by midnight, Sunday 25 August 2019.

“The successful applicants will be announced on Monday 2 September and will then have approximately two months to create their piece.

“We’re very excited to see the applications and how local creative minds will interpret renewable energy future in their community.”
