Time Out Melbourne

Artists and young urbanites mesh their creativity

If Melbourne were a work of art, what would it be? A graffiti-covered wall, or video installation? Or maybe a free-form saxophone solo?

To capture the textures, sounds and shapes that make up Melbourne, Signal is hosting the Urban Mesh Workhouse, bringing together artists and young urbanites to mesh their creativity.

Actors, architects, animators – leading artists from different fields will feature in monthly three-day Workhouses running from April to September as part of a collaborative project with the Melbourne Jazz Festival and Experimenta. Drop in for one three-day Workhouse, or all six, to make your mark on the final work, to be exhibited as the Urban Mesh Manifestation.
