GET INSPIRED: APPLYING DESIGN TO YOUR ARTS PRACTICE

Geelong Design Week celebrates Geelong’s global recognition as Australia’s only UNESCO City of Design.

Over 10 days from 19 to 29 March, leading local and international design experts will host more than 80 events that explore new ideas and challenge what’s possible.

City of Greater Geelong, supported by the Geelong Arts Centre, is excited to present: Designing Art: 10×10.

Designing Art: 10×10 gets up close and personal with Geelong’s major cultural events Mountain to Mouth 80km Arts Walk and Geelong After Dark, events which engage a rich pool of local artists working across many disciplines.

These visionaries create site-specific artworks that help us view our local places and spaces through new eyes, innovating with form, function, materials and concepts to re-imagine our world. Their methods often can seem arcane and magical for the uninitiated.

In this content-rich, two-hour session ten leading local arts practitioners from multiple diverse fields of artistic practice reveal the design thinking underpinning their work – where they begin, how they plan, and the conceptual processes that guide their approach.

Each artist talk will explore a signature artwork as a practical exemplar of their approach.

10 ARTISTS, 10 ARTWORKS, 10 MINUTES EACH. 

Refreshments will be provided on arrival.
There will be time after the presentation to meet the artists.

Booking essential. Purchase your FREE ticket here. 

There are plenty more events to attend over the duration of Geelong Design Week. The Geelong Arts Centre are also proud to be hosting: THEATRE BY DESIGN on the 25th of March. This is an opportunity for you to open your mind to new ways of designing as you have the opportunity to step behind the stage and hear from contemporary theatre designers about their process for realising their vision on-stage.
