Artworks that communicate our vision for a sustainable city.

Living Stories

Living Lanes have curated 5 creative projects that engage and inspire locals and visitors. We encouraged artists to consider 3d relief, kinetic, interactive, tactile and sensory experiences. Artworks will be suitable for all weather conditions and have a lifespan of more than 2 years. We wanted artists to think about sustainability and end of life within the creation of their artworks.
