WHAT IS FLOAT?

ABOUT BANNER.png

FLOAT is a Small Town Transformations project based at Lake Tyers Beach, East Gippsland, Victoria.

The Small Town Transformations program invited small towns across Victoria to imagine what transformation might mean for their town. Six small towns of less than 2,000 people were awarded $350,000 each, over two years, for projects that would realise their big ideas. Read more here.


WHAT IS FLOAT?

FLOAT is a STUDIO – for lake-loving artists-in-residence and environmental scientists
FLOATing on Lake Tyers. 
FLOAT is an ARTWORK in itself.
FLOAT will provide a model for creative environmental stewardship in small towns.
We will build a COMMUNIVERSITY based on what we learn

WHAT’S THE POINT?

FLOAT will tell the world what a special place we have.
And remind us all to protect it, to enjoy it, to explore it.
To galvanise us all a little more, to do that - with gusto!
And to connect us across the Lake Tyers Catchment - with our mutual love of stories, knowledge, & nature.
We expect it to drive economic outcomes as a model for small towns.
