FLOAT is a floating arts residency on LakeTyers, East Gippsland, Victoria. Now you'll be able to find us - teaming up with FOUNDRY and the Slipway Collective - @ Lakes Entrance. The Slipway Precinct will bring more ART into Lakes Entrance as FLOAT Artists in Residence share their work to enrich the traveller's experience of the Gippsland Lakes.
FLOAT @ SLIPWAY
The FLOAT project has evolved from East Gippsland's best known Arts Team. 15 years later - after attracting over $1 million in arts funding to the region - FLOAT has emerged as a new force for art + nature in East Gippsland.
FLOAT, at its heart, is a Floating Art Studio on Lake Tyers. An outcome of the Victorian Government's Small Town Transformations program, it's a high profile arts project now attracting global media and enormous artistic attention. "With over 200 Expressions of Interest already received, we can't keep up with the demand from artists wanting to make art here in East Gippsland".
FLOAT is building a 'COMMUNIVERSITY' to bring local stories, history, and deeply local. knowledge to the everyday conversation - through ART.
