Melbourne Awards

01 Nov 2018

Docklands organisations have been nominated for the 2018 Melbourne Awards, the city’s highest accolades.

Dialogue in the Dark, based at The District Docklands, has been nominated for the Community Award (Community).

The interactive experience has guides with blindness or low-vision who lead visitors through a specially-constructed and totally darkened exhibition that recreates iconic locations across Melbourne.

It aims to improve understanding of blindness and low vision and create meaningful employment and training.

Africa Day Australia Inc. (ADA) has been nominated for the Multiculturalism Award (Community). The initiative advocates for and engages the diverse African Australian organisations and individuals, especially women and youth, and has advanced the wellbeing of African communities. ADA regularly has events in Docklands.

The Exchange at Knowledge Market, by RMIT University and Lendlease, has been nominated for the Sustainability Award (Corporation).

The research collaboration and “Urban Living Lab” in Victoria Harbour has had a series of design studios, exhibitions, forums and events since starting last year.

It has explored and shared ideas for sustainable and resilient futures within the urban environment – including rising sea levels, behavioural change addressing consumption and waste, and greener cities through biodiversity.

The winners of the Melbourne Awards will be announced at a function at the Town Hall on Saturday, November 17.
