Collaborations and opportunities for creative development can come from things you’d never expect to be playful, such as infrastructure.

Our city is rapidly expanding, and with growth comes a greater emphasis on infrastructure.

As public transport, roads and shared paths become more ubiquitous, new opportunities are emerging for creative industries to take an active role in the development of Melbourne. Who says all infrastructure needs to be solely functional?

Last year Dr. Troy Innocent converted a tram into a moving, playable symphony. The tram will once again take to the streets for its final chorus on route 96 from Brunswick to St Kilda for Melbourne International Games Week 2019.

What new collaborations will you venture into to bring playful augmentations to our everyday urban lives?
