As the City of Casey’s vibrant new entertainment precinct, it is the creative and community heart of the region. Bunjil Place brings together an unprecedented mix of facilities including an outdoor community plaza, theatre, multipurpose studio, function centre, library, gallery and City of Casey Customer Service Centre all in one place.
Bunjil Place extends beyond the building, it is embodied by the whole precinct; from the glass façade of the impressive foyer it extends across the landscape to the memorial grove, Casey ARC and surrounds. With so many spaces, a variety of exciting and diverse entertainment options and activities are possible, enabling visitors to create their own experience. It is a destination for everyone to access, year-round.
Bunjil Place has installed an urban screen in the plaza area of the precinct which shows a range of programming from events, interactive projects and arts programs. Streaming Museum has been a founding collaborator of the screen program since Bunjil’s launch in October 2017.
Federation Square was one of Streaming Museum’s launch partners on January 29, 2008, when locations on seven continents symbolically exhibited at precisely the same time Good Morning Mr. Orwell (1984) by Nam June Paik.
Fed Square’s Creative Program aims to cultivate artistic relationships, a diversity of new, site-specific work throughout the year, and various forums for public engagement with artists. The priority is to work with artists and creatives who can create provocative work that responds very specifically to the unique physical and social public environment that is Federation Square. This includes commissioning new work, partnering with artists to present existing projects in exciting new ways, and forming residencies with key, identified creative organizations for longer-term and durational results.
Federation Square is Melbourne’s meeting place and a unique cultural and community precinct. Fed Square brings together a creative mix of attractions, including the likes of Australian Centre for the Moving Image and the National Gallery Victoria – Ian Potter Centre, along with restaurants, cafes, bars and function centres. Over 2000 events are held annually. The main plaza is designed around a 65m2 high definition outdoor LED screen and this modern multimedia precinct hosts additional indoor LED screens, interactive ticker screens, touch screen information portals and temporary projection installations.
MACQUARIE MALL URBAN SCREEN
As part of its commitment to providing a holistic, accessible and engaging cultural city to residents and visitors, Council regularly seeks to facilitate creative and cultural experiences outside of its existing facilities such as Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre (CPAC), Liverpool Regional Museum and libraries. The rapidly changing urban environment of Liverpool presents opportunities for Council to explore ways that it can support and develop creative hubs embedded within business and recreation precincts to build capacity and sustainability of arts practice in Western Sydney. Indeed, making provisions for artists’ studios, pop-ups, social enterprises, creative spaces and the like is an ambition that Council is beginning to pursue within the Liverpool CBD and its outer suburbs. Such initiatives would increase the visibility and accessibility of arts and cultural practice across Western Sydney by presenting these to audiences outside of traditional arts institutions.
The Urban Screen is located at the south end of the newly-revamped Macquarie Mall, which is also known as the ‘spine’ of Liverpool CBD. The Mall is well-known to Liverpool residents, workers and visitors, is a dining, shopping and recreational destination, as well as a high traffic area. The central location of the screen means that the outcome of the residencies – content to be played on the screen – will receive optimal reach across a wide cross-section of Liverpool’s residents, workers and visitors.
An initiative of Willoughby City Council, The Concourse is the cultural home of the North Shore. The Concourse is one of Sydney’s leading entertainment venues home to a dynamic range of live arts and entertainment. The Concourse incorporates a Concert Hall and Theatre as well as rehearsal and studio space. It also provides conferencing facilities and venues for hire. Chatswood Library provides over 5,000 square metres of books, resources and reference material, entertainment and information. The Outdoor Urban Screen is programmed full of free public entertainment including digital art, open air cinema, live sporting events, news and national events and live broadcasts of sold out performances. The Concourse is also home to a handful of great restaurants and boutique retail stores.
THE PERTH CULTURAL CENTRE
The LED Screen at the Perth Cultural Centre has been installed to promote local cultural institutions and promote community engagement through place activation. The screen will run as a non-commercial screen that will be used for events, festivals, artists, community messaging and interactive projects. Located in the heart of the precinct the screen will operate from 6am – 11pm, 7 days a week with ambient content after hours. The Cultural Centre Screen is situated in the James Street amphitheatre between PICA and the State Library. The screen is programmed on a fortnightly schedule. Content on the big screen is divided into a series of dedicated time slots filled with appropriate commissioned work, promotional material and interactive/multimedia projects, with relevant free-to-air and Foxtel content around these dedicated timeslots. All programs are scheduled onsite through the content management system.
