TREATMENT public art display

Saturday, 21 November 2015

​The TREATMENT project has enabled six artists to explore and interpret the Western Treatment Plant.

The project tour provides an opportunity to explore the landscape, history, science and innovation at the Western Treatment Plant through art.

Organised by Deakin University School of Communication and Creative Arts, and supported by Melbourne Water and Wyndham City Council, the artists have spent six months exploring the plant’s sights, sounds, textures and even smell to create their artwork.

Their artworks will be temporarily displayed at the plant during November with the free bus tours being used to move the audience throughout the site.

The art tour will be run over two days:

  • 14 November 2015
  • 21 November 2015
