Castlemaine State Festival

The Castlemaine State Festival is held in March every second year. La Trobe University is a sponsor of this important cultural event.

In 2017, the LAI supported a symposium with the 10 exhibiting artists featured in the LAI Bendigo Mutable Truths exhibition, providing rare and inspiring insights into contemporary Filipino art.The LAI also supported one of these artists in residence, Leeroy New. Leeroy worked with La Trobe University students in the development of a work for the façade of the Castlemaine Art Museum, La Puerta Del Laberinto.
