Nillumbik Digital Agora Program

Youth Program 2018

In 2018 the Nillumbik Digital Agora’s Youth Program showcased projection based public artworks developed by six young creatives in collaboration with lead artist Yandell Walton.

The secondary school aged students created the artworks with the lead artist over a three-day intensive workshop utilising green screen, animation and other digital technologies hosted by Banyule Nillumbik Tech School. The artists responded to the theme of the agora as an open space that serves as an assembly area and a place for commercial, civic and social activities.

The resulting individual and collaborative projection-based artworks were displayed nightly from 14 September to 1 October 2018 across two sites in public space in Eltham.

Program 2019

In 2019 the Nillumbik Digital Agora's program is being expanded and will include:

  • An intensive three-day projection art masterclass for Victorian artists/creatives with lead artist Yandell Walton
  • New artworks especially commissioned for the program from multiple Victorian artists/creatives.
  • Unique sites in public places across Diamond Creek, Hurstbridge, St Andrews and Eltham to showcase the commissioned artworks

More information including for how artists/creatives can apply will be provided in November 2018.

The Nillumbik Digital Agora project is supported by the State Government of Victoria through Creative Victoria’s Creative Suburbs Program. The project’s youth program is presented in partnership with Banyule Nillumbik Tech School.
