Hosted by the Noosa Biosphere Cultural Board in Australia, the inaugural Noosa Biosphere Art Prize is an award with particular interest in incubating creative practice at the intersection of art, science, technology and the environment. The award theme for 2012 is ‘Innovation in Green Art’ and will fund a artist or collective $2000 to deliver a project at the arts and cultural event Floating Land 2013.
Over the last several decades, Green Art has emerged globally as a prolific and compelling contemporary social and art movement. A diverse and large number of artists and institutions are actively engaged in exploring and expanding the cross-cultural intersection of creativity and ecology. Worldwide, Green Art (also captured by the terms environmental art and eco‐art) is inspiring and facilitating innovative relationships and culturally transformative projects between scientists, communities and the creative sector.
