1 May 2009 submission deadline
Placed presents projects by artists, designers, architects, planners and other urbanists that are directed toward cultural innovation, action and change in Australian cities, suburbs, towns and communities.
Placed is a gathering project that will catalogue and map 100 or so projects produced in Australia in the last few years. The intention is to present emerging and changing ideas about our cities, communities and places. This includes interventions, artworks, and events that are articulated in urban, suburban and community situations, and that have catalysed or enabled other ways of thinking, living and doing in the urban environment.
These projects, regardless of scale, are genuinely concerned with the way we envision, create and live in our places. For more information contact Linda at [email protected] or visit: www.placing.synthasite.com/placed.php
