To inspire artistic concern for the health of Port Phillip Bay and in particular the coastal stretch of the City of Port Phillip, we plan to hold an exhibition with the theme Healing the Bay. We are looking for works that can bring public insight and inspiration into the range of issues that are putting pressure on our bay, including but not limited to sea level rise, climate change, coastal development and sustainability.
The works can be paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures or any graphic media that focuses on some aspect of Healing the Bay. That work might highlight, issue or inspire action, warn of the consequences of inaction or just record the beauty of what we now have and need to preserve.
We aim to be able to provide a prize for the “most inconvenient artwork”, that work that most inspires its viewers to be concerned for the health of the Bay.
