The 2014 Signal Screen Commissions were launched on 18 September to the delight of many locals who pass the unassuming stand-alone building in the Les Erdi Plaza of Northbank. Located behind Flinders Street Station at the northern end of Sandridge Bridge and at the top of Banana Alley, Signal has been supporting the young people from all walks of life in Melbourne by offering them a space for making and showing their talent in every possible medium. It also hosts FREE workshops to help these young talents to develop their skills.

Running till 21 October, Signal is using the iGlass technology on its window façade as the medium for a selected team of young artists to showcase their works. They include Trent Crawford, Guled Abdulwasi, Claire Kopietz, Celeste Veldze and Nik Lee. These 16 to 25 year olds represent the diversity and excellence of young people making art in and around Melbourne. They are supported by project artist Michael Meneghetti and artist mentors Isobel Knowles, Tim Bright, Pip Ryan and Amelia Johannes. The screening will commence after dark throughout the exhibition period so remember to stop and enjoy the screenings when you pass by Signal.
