History of Immerse

Immerse 2019

Since its inception Immerse has covered over 100km2 across Knox. Developed and coordinated by Knox City Council in 2015, Immerse is a celebrated Public Arts event.

The program aims to make the arts more accessible by engaging with people as part of their everyday lives. It has provided artists with the opportunity to introduce their artwork to the public, collaborate with an experienced curator and potentially, win prize money.

The exhibition program makes visual arts more publicly accessible and stimulates a greater understanding of and discussion about, the cultural future of Knox.
