Gertrude Street Projection Festival
For the pleasure of your eyes, The Gertrude Street Projection Festival is back again, lighting up Fitzroy from July 19 to 28. Pull out your scarves and mittens to brave the weather and marvel as windows, laneways, walls, footpaths, shop interiors, tree-trunks, and whole buildings will be lit up with artistic inventions, created by award winning projection artists and community groups. The Festival’s diverse art program helps to celebrate and connect the community and engage the larger community.
The festival, spanning across 30 sites along Gertrude Street, has been curated in accordance with a theme, "Illuminate", with highlights including Nick Azidis’ colourful 14 storey projection on Atherton Gardens Housing Estate.
However, if the winter weather is too much to bear for extended periods of time, head inside to the Festival Hub, upstairs at Gertrude’s Brown Couch. Open every night from 6pm til late, the hub will boast workshops, industry nights, projections and DJ’s, allowing the creativity to flow both inside and out.
