Fairfax Media is the largest integrated metropolitan, rural and regional print and online digital media company in Australasia, with publications and websites in every State and the ACT in Australia, and in New Zealand. Among its flagship publications is The Age, a highly regarded newspaper founded in 1854, which is also available online at www.theage.com.au and via smartphone and iPad.
The RMIT University Spatial Dialogues team is working with Fairfax Media to bring environmental art works from Melbourne, Shanghai and Tokyo to the huge public screen on the front of Media House, 655 Collins Street in Melbourne - headquarters of The Age.
This project is the type of community involvement we want for our media screen. With a strong editorial stance on sustainability and environment generally and water conservation specifically, the Spatial Dialogues project is particularly relevant at this time. We are delighted to be working with RMIT, and are thrilled to be able to provide a showcase for their work.
