Artwork proposals for Living Lanes were evaluated by a panel featuring leading members of the Blue Mountains artistic community. Applications were assessed on but not limited to: creative approach to addressing sustainability, innovative approach to interpretation of public laneway spaces, calibre/experience of artist/s/team and audience experience. Artists were also asked to consider 3D, kinetic, interactive, tactile and sensory experiences.
