29-Oct-2017

Presented in partnership with Architecture Foundation Australia, is a behind-the-scenes exploration of 30 of the most important Australian homes of the past 60 years. 
The exhibition explores the design and building of these houses, as well as the experiences of those who live in them, and illustrates the emergence of a distinctively Australian approach to home design. Vivid photography, rich illustrations, 3D models and filmed interviews look beyond the physical structures to tell the story of how good design can enrich lifestyle. 
Iconic Australian Houses includes a sneak peek at one of the award-winning Australian houses featured in Karen McCartney’s forthcoming book, Superhouse: architecture & interiors beyond the everyday, which looks at stand-out contemporary architecture from across the world.

The Blake Poetry Prize

31-Dec-2017


 Blake Poetry Prize
The Blake Poetry Prize challenges Australian poets to explore the spiritual and religious in a new work of 100 lines or less.
From 2017 Liverpool City Library, in partnership with Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, will deliver The Blake Poetry Prize as a biennial event. Liverpool City Library and Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre will maintain the guiding principles of The Blake Poetry Prize in continuing to engage contemporary poets, both national and international, in conversations concerning faith, spirituality, religion, hope, humanity, social justice, belief and non-belief. The Blake Poetry Prize is an aesthetic means of exploring the wider experience of spirituality with the visionary imagining of contemporary poets.
The Blake Prize takes its name from William Blake, a poet and artist of undoubted genius, who integrated religious and artistic content in his work. The Blake Poetry Prize challenges contemporary poets of disparate styles to explore the spiritual and religious in a new work of 100 lines or less.
The Blake Poetry Prize is strictly non-sectarian. The entries are not restricted to works related to any faith or any artistic style, but all poems entered must have a recognisable religious or spiritual integrity.
To Apply: First, please pay your $20 entry fee. You will need the confirmation number when you fill out the entry form (download here). Poems and entry forms may be sent by email to blakepoetryprize@casulapowerhouse.com or hard copies may be submitted to:
