Melbourne Art Trams Project

Melbourne Art Trams Project

Can you keep RMIT in the winners’ circle with your artwork?

Want to see a gigantic version of your artwork roaming around Melbourne?

The competition

The Melbourne Art Trams Project is a public art project by Melbourne Festival, Arts Victoria and Yarra Trams that transforms the city’s iconic trams into moving works of art. Back for its second year, eight artworks will be chosen to adorn eight trams – one of which could be yours.

Whether you are a professional or an emerging artist, you will stand a chance to join the ranks of RMIT’s students and alumni whose artworks were chosen in last year’s Melbourne Art Trams project.

Students Freya Pitt, Rose Nolan and Joe Campbell brought three trams to life with their artworks Going Somewhere, It’s Okay to be Alright and Backyard. Alumni Sebastian Berto, Zahra Zainal and Rhiannon Thomas, who were members of the Joining Forces Collective, also had their artwork chosen.

The winning artworks will be launched on eight trams in early October 2014 as part of Melbourne Festival.


$5000 will be awarded for the artwork with the most public vote.


Submissions close on 1 June 2014.
