This famous free art festival is making its Geelong debut this October
The overnight art party that is White Night is moving further south in October, with White Night Geelong making its colourful debut this year.
This visual spectacular and cultural event will descend on Geelong on Saturday, October 13 from 7pm through to 2am. Colourful projections and installations will light up the city, transforming the streets, laneways, parks and the Geelong foreshore. The festival will also be featuring a host of musical performances and interactive works that you can get amongst in the wee hours of the morning.
The program features a few new installations and some crowd favourites including The Armistice – Victoria Remembers, a projection that will mark the 100-year anniversary of the end of World War I. Some highlights to keep an eye out for are the Neon Dog Park, Pyramid Power in Johnstone Park and Debra Goldsmith’s Chandeliers, a Versailles-inspired work that features discarded PET soft drink bottles, wire and other plastics formed to create six OTT chandeliers.
Geelong will be the third regional town to host White Night after Ballarat and Bendigo. We recently heard news that Melbourne’s version of White Night will be moving to winter in 2019, so this might be your only chance to experience projection art in a (somewhat) warmer climate.
