Gertrude Street Projection Festival- 10th Anniversary


Friday 21 July 2017 - Sunday 30 July 2017

Victoria’s favourite street festival of light and projection art celebrates its 10th Anniversary.

This July, Melbourne’s Gertrude Street will be awash with colour as multiple light installations takeover shop fronts, laneways, galleries and footpaths with bright electrifying artworks. Gertrude Street Projection Festival officially opens on Friday 21 July, and runs for ten nights until Sunday 30 July.

Gertrude Street Projection Festival is a free, community-driven event, and this year’s program will boast over 30 artworks from large-scale illuminated outdoor projections to more intimate video artworks. Starting at the Nicholson Street end, with the return of the Festival Hub at Catfish, the festival continues down to Atherton Towers, The Gertrude Hotel, and all the way to Smith Street junction.

Four Australian artists have been announced for this year’s program: Yandell Walton, Ray Thomas, Susan Forrester and Jody Haines. They will join an illustrious list of Gertrude Street Projection Festival alumni including Ian de Gruchy, Nick Azidis, Lauren Dunn, Jacob Tolo, Luzena Adams, Rose Staff, Amanda Morgan and Skunk Control.

Once again running alongside the major light installations, Gertrude Street Projection Festival will have a dedicated free and ticketed Special Events program of dance, food, live performances from local DJs and musicians, and late night music happenings including temporary artworks within the Atherton Gardens Precinct.

There’s no better place to take in the pulse of one of Melbourne’s oldest suburbs. The full program of artists and special events will be announced in late-June.
