Airtime Rotation 25- Woods Street Youth Art Prize 2020 installation shot


Airtime is an ephemeral public art project that highlights the creative talents of young people in Hobsons Bay. Artworks are reproduced and printed on large flags and exhibited above the Queen Street Skate Park in Altona Meadows. Each series of Airtime artworks is curated under different themes.

Airtime Rotation 25 celebrates a selection of artworks from the 2020 Woods Street Youth Art Prize. The annual Woods Street Youth Art Prize showcases the artistic talent and innovation of young people aged 14 to 25 from Melbourne’s western region. The exhibition is part of the program at Woods Street Arts Space, a shopfront-style community arts centre at 44 Woods St, Laverton and produced in partnership with the Hobsons Bay Emerging Curators Program (ECP). The ECP is a skills development program that sees professional arts practitioners mentor and support young aspiring curators.
