NGV TEMPORARY CLOSURE

From our team here at NGV, we’d like to express our very best wishes to our community at this time.

Due to the evolving nature of COVID-19 and after following closely the State and Federal Government’s advice, we have extended the NGV’s temporary closure until 30 June.

If you have pre-purchased tickets for current exhibitions or upcoming programs, our team will be in contact with you shortly to arrange full refunds.

We encourage you to visit our website and follow #NGVEveryDay on social media for updates and daily inspiration.

We are very grateful for the loyalty and understanding of the NGV community and wish everyone well during this time.

E-waste Challenge Live Pitch Final
Victorian Design Challenge 2020

Presented by NGV

Sorry you missed this one!
Free entry Wed 18 Mar, 10am–3.30pm
NGV International
Great Hall

Creative Victoria and NGV are offering a $20,000 major prize for the best design idea in the Professional category and $5000 in the Tertiary category in a challenge addressing one of the world’s fastest growing waste problems – e-waste. Teams in each category will have to convince the Challenge jury, chaired by Craig Reucassel from the ABC’s War on Waste, that their idea is the best solution to tackle the 40 million tons of e-waste produced globally every year.

The E-Waste Challenge aims to highlight the capacity and responsibility of designers to contribute to shifting behaviour, raising awareness, redesigning products, or devising smart end-of-life solutions that reduce the negative impacts of e-waste.
